Hūhana Lyndon, nō Ngātiwai, Ngāti Hine, Ngāti Whātua, Waikato Tainui and Pare Hauraki. Daughter of the North, her roots, life and career are firmly grounded in Te Tai Tokerau.

As a single mother raising 3 daughters, Hūhana is an advocate for the advancement of He Whakaputanga me Te Tiriti o Waitangi with the Crown, Local Government and community on behalf of hapū and iwi. Hūhana has a diverse career portfolio in health, education and primary industries at operational and governance levels. Hūhana has stood twice in Local Government Elections.

Hūhana is the former CEO of Ngātiwai Trust Board and Ngāti Hine Forestry Trust. Hūhana secured research funding for the development of the first Indigenous Forestry Transition Plan for the 5600ha of the Trust’s corpus underpinned by mātauranga o Ngāti Hine. She implemented cadetships into the Trust’s Kiwifruit Orchards and led the iwi strategy for the protection of taonga on land and sea underpinned by WAI 262. Hūhana takes a collaborative leadership approach which was demonstrated in the Ngātiwai and Ngāti Hine COVID-19 response – tiaki tangata, whenua, me te moana.

The Greens stand for Te Tiriti o Waitangi justice. With Te Tiriti as our foundation we move together as Tangata Whenua and Tangata Tiriti for Tangata and Taiao. 

“As a member of Te Mātāwaka (Māori Pasifika Caucus) I look forward to advocating for our diverse community voices, for hapū and iwi to uphold He Whakaputanga 1835, Te Tiriti o Waitangi 1840 and te mana rangatiratanga o Te Iwi Māori”
