In the 1930s Ratana aligned with the New Zealand Labour Party for the mutual benefit of both sides. Ratana/Labour candidates dominated the Maori seats in parliament until the 1990s and remain a political force to be reckoned with.

The Ratana Church has its headquarters at the settlement of Ratana, near Wanganui.
