Housing and hemp are among the topics to be covered at the National Iwi Chairs Forum in Hastings over the next three days.

Ngāti Kahungunu chair Ngahiwi Tomoana says today's kaupapa is global indigenous tribal trading, with speakers including Māori Development Minister Nanaia Mahuta, Pacific Minister Aupito Willian Sio, ambassadors from the United Arab Emirates and Indonesia and First National representatives from the United States and Canada.

The 80 iwi will also look at freshwater and climate change, constitutional change, and social issues including Whānau Ora, Oranga Tamariki, health, education, and data sovereignty.
