Ngāti Whakaue is a Māori iwi, of the Te Arawa confederation of New Zealand. The tribe lives in the Rotorua district and descends from the Arawa waka.[1][2]

Ngāti Whakaue traces descent from Whakaue Kaipapa, son of Uenuku-kopakō.

The Ngāti Whakaue chief Pūkākī is depicted on the New Zealand 20 cent coin.[3]

Te Arawa FM is the radio station of Te Arawa iwi, including Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Pikiao and Tūhourangi. It was established in the early 1980s and became a charitable entity in November 1990.[4] The station underwent a major transformation in 1993, becoming Whanau FM.[5] One of the station's frequencies was taken over by Mai FM in 1998; the other became Pumanawa FM before later reverting to Te Arawa FM.[6] It is available on 89.0 FM in Rotorua.[7]
