Uenuku-Kōpako is a Māori iwi of the Te Arawa confederation in the Bay of Plenty of New Zealand.[1][2]

Te Arawa FM is the radio station of Te Arawa iwi. It was established in the early 1980s and became a charitable entity in November 1990.[3] The station underwent a major transformation in 1993, becoming Whanau FM.[4] 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.[5] It is available on 89.0 FM in Rotorua..[6]
