Section Two - Indigenous Māori/Pacific Ancestry

Please complete this section by using EITHER the Certification or Testimonial option

CERTIFICATION

To complete this option, you must (i) fill in the names of your ancestors in the table below to the best of your knowledge and (ii) provide details of a person who can certify your ancestry. If there are outstanding concerns, MAPAS may require that additional information is provided by the applicant.

Please fill in the names of your ancestors in the table below to the best of your knowledge. If you don’t know the name of a particular ancestor, please write “unknown”. For each Māori or indigenous Pacific ancestor, please tick Māori and/or Pacific.

If you are unable to provide the ancestry information below, a testimonial can be submitted if an applicant believes they have indigenous Māori and/or Pacific ancestry, but cannot provide any details to identify an indigenous Māori and/or Pacific ancestor (e.g. names). The testimonial details should explain why the applicant believes they are eligible for MAPAS but cannot provide ancestry information (e.g. history of whāngai/adoption, personal issues). The Director Vision 20:20 will review each testimonial on a case by case basis.

Certification of Māori Whakapapa/Ancestry or Pacific Ancestry.

  • The certifier cannot be a sibling, spouse, parent, sibling of a parent (aunty/uncle) or grandparent to the applicant.
  • The certifier must be able to confirm the ancestry details provided above.
