I te marama o Poutūterangi 2016 ka tohua a John Tamihere ki te poari o Whakaata Māori. Mai i te tau 1999 ki 2005 he mema ia o Paremata, ā, mai i Hereturikōkā 2002 ki Whiringa ā Rangi 2004 he minita a ia mō Reipa.

I mahi a ia hei rōia mō te Kōti Whenua Māori me te Tari mō ngā Take Māori, otirā, i te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau, i whakawhiwhia a ia ki ngā tohu mātauranga mō ngā toi me te ture. Ko a ia te Kaiwhakahaere Mātāmua o te Waipareira Trust, he kaupapa whakarato hauora me te mātauranga ki ngā Māori kei te rohe o Tāmaki ki te Uru.

He mema Mātāwaka a John o te Independent Māori Statutory Board, ā, ko ia te heamana o te New Zealand Māori Rugby League Board. He kaiwhakahau toa a ia mō ngā Māori o te taone karekau e mōhio ki ō rātau iwi me ō rātau herenga waka.

He kaimahi anō mō te ao pāpāho i runga pouaka whakaata, i runga hoki i te reo irirangi, ana i te tau 2007 ko ia tētahi i whai i te tūnga o te Mea o Waitākere. He tautōhito a John ki te whānui o ngā mahi, pērā ki te ao pāpāho, te ao whakahaere, me ngā mahi kaitātakitanga.
