What is the name of the local maori tribe for Auckland City?

Today Auckland City covers a large area which includes the Rohe of a number of different Iwi.

The local tribe who lived in the area where downtown Auckland is now was Ngāti Whātua.

There is also a generic name for the Māori living in Auckland today - that is "Ngāti Ākarana".

Ākarana is "Auckland" transliterated into Māori, as opposed to Tāmaki-makau-rau which is the Māori name for Auckland.

Bear in mind that which tribe lived in a particular area sometimes changed over history as well, due to wars and other factors.

Also a maori tribe not far from Auckland is NGAPUHI
