About Us

Aukaha has a long history in Otago.

We started life as Kāi Tahu ki Otago Natural Resource Management Limited or KTKO in the late nineties and changed our name in 2017 to better reflect the range and breadth of our consultancy services and expertise.

We are a Rūnaka based consultancy service with Governance from our five Rūnaka owners:

  • Te Rūnanga o Waihao
  • Te Rūnanga o Moeraki
  • Kāti Huirapa Rūnaka ki Puketeraki
  • Te Rūnanga o Ōtākou
  • Hokonui Rūnanga
