Ngāti Pōneke Young Māori Club is a Māori cultural club that was formed in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1937. It is a pan-tribal group of Māori who have migrated to Wellington (like Ngāti Ākarana in Auckland and Ngāti Rānana in London). "Pōneke" is a Maori language name for Wellington, derived from "Port Nicholson".[1]
