Ngāti Hine is an iwi with a rohe in Northland, New Zealand. It is part of the wider Ngāpuhi iwi. Ngāti Hine is descended from a female ancestor, Hineamaru, a great granddaughter of Rāhiri who settled in the Waiomio Valley, near Kawakawa.[1] The prominent leader in the early years of European contact was Te Ruki Kawiti (1770s–1854).

Ngāti Hine wished to withdraw from Te Runanga-a-Iwi o Ngapuhi charitable trust (but not from Ngāpuhi) in 2010.[2] The chair of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Hine was Te Waihoroi Shortland, as of July 2014.[3] Ngāti Hine FM broadcasts to Ngāti Hine and the wider Ngāpuhi iwi[4] on 99.1 FM and 99.6 FM in Whangarei.[5]
