Porirua ki Manawatū District Inquiry
In 2008, the Waitangi Tribunal received a number of requests to inquire into Treaty claims in the Taihape, Rangitīkei, Manawatū, Horowhenua, and Kāpiti areas. Some claims in this region were already in the process of being settled with Rangitāne ki Manawatū and Ngāti Toa Rangatira already in negotiations with the Crown.

The western boundary of the Porirua ki Manawatū district extends to the Whangaehu River in the west and down the Kāpiti coast to near the Porirua harbour, including Mana and Kāpiti islands. The southern boundary follows the boundary of the Whanganui-ā-Tara inquiry district from the Tasman Sea to the Tararua Ranges.
