June was appointed a member of the Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission in 2000 by the late Parekura Horomia. In the 1985 Queen's Birthday Honours, Mariu was awarded the Queen's Service Medal for public services. In the 2006 New Year Honours, she was appointed a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit presented by The Right Honourable Sir Anand Satyanand, for services to Māori and the community, and in the 2012 Queen's Birthday and Diamond Jubilee Honours she was promoted to Dame Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit presented by Lieutenant General The Right Honourable Sir Jerry Mateparae, also for services to Māori and the community. She continues to inspire many people from the grassroots up. June has had strong ties with the Kīngitanga through the first Māori Queen, the late Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu, as well as through her iwi of Te Whānau a Apanui. She later became a member of the Tekau-Ma-Rua, a group of representatives from across the country, chosen by the current Māori King, Te Arikinui Tūheitia Pōtatu Te Wherowhero VII Paki. Dame June Mariu was chosen to serve as the first patron to NZ's largest Māori public health body, Hāpai Te Hauora Tapui back in 2014. She had the honour of being officially appointed by King Tūheitia. June was the representative for Hapai Te Hauora and Te Whānau a Apanui, however the role now falls on Rikirangi Gage as her successor for Te Whānau a Apanui. Her relation Dame Iritana Tāwhiwhirangi is also currently in this group as a companion member due to her work for the Kōhanga Reo. (en)
