Ngāti Maru is a Māori iwi of inland Taranaki in New Zealand. They are descended from Maruwharanui, a son of Hotunui. Te Upoko o te Whenua Marae is the iwi's marae near Tarata. The iwi has two trusts, Te Runanga o Ngati Maru (Taranaki) Trust (which replaced Ngati Maru Wharanui Pukehou Trust) and Ngati Maru (Taranaki) Fisheries Trust. The settlement of Purangi is within their area.
The descendants of a brother, Marukōpiri, settled on the Whanganui river.
