Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki is a Māori tribal group in the area around Clevedon near Auckland. Ngāi Tai Ki Tāmaki people first arrived in the Tainui Waka and settled in Tamaki. From here after various migrations some of the tribe decided to leave their traditional home to settle in the Hauraki districts of Clevedon/ Maraetai, Howick and as far inland as Otara and Maungarei. Te Irirangi Drive, a major highway in Manukau City, is named after the Ngāi Tai Ki Tāmaki rangatira, Tara Te Irirangi.

In 2015 the Crown settled with Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki over historic grievances, including both financial and cultural compensation.[1]

Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki forms part of the Hauraki Tribes Collective.[2]
