History

In the 1959 the group was founded by a small group of London-based New Zealanders as the London Maori Club.[2] In 1971 it was renamed the Ngati Ranana London Maori Club. 'Ngati' denotes a tribe or iwi and 'Ranana' is a Māori language transliteration of the word London.

Ngati Ranana has a close association with the High Commission of New Zealand in London.

Founding member Esther Jessop was named New Zealander of the Year in Britain for 2009.[2]
