Ngāti Whare is a Māori iwi of New Zealand.

Ngati Whare are part of a group of tribes participating in the "treelords" Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the New Zealand government involving Central North Island forestry land and cash.[1]

As part of the Ngāti Whare Claims Settlement Act 2012 the government signed a co-governance agreement for the Whirinaki Te Pua-a-Tāne Conservation Park with Ngati Whare. The government apologised for past injustices and acknowledged the forest was integral to Ngati Whare's cultural identity and wellbeing. The settlement provided for a joint Ngati Whare and Crown ecological regeneration project.[2][3][4]
