Ngāti Hine is an iwi with a rohe in Northland, New Zealand. It is part of the wider Ngāpuhi iwi. Ngāti Hine is descended from a female ancestor, Hineamaru, a great granddaughter of Rāhiri who settled in the Waiomio Valley, near Kawakawa. The prominent leader in the early years of European contact was Te Ruki Kawiti (1770s–1854).

Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Hine
Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Hine represents the iwi in resource consent consultation under the Resource Management Act, but that does not imply formal Crown recognition of the iwi, or the trust's authority to act on behalf of the iwi. Under the Māori Fisheries Act, if Ngāti Hine correctly withdraws from the joint mandated iwi organisation of Ngāpuhi, it will also be recognised as an iwi under that Act. The charitable trust is governed by a tribal parliament, Te Mara a Hineamaru, which is made up of three representatives from 13 marae and based in Kawakawa.
