Indo Kiwi or Indian New Zealander are New Zealanders of Indian or subcontinental heritage, living in New Zealand. The term includes Indians born in New Zealand, NRI and Indo Fijians, Indians of African origin, Middle Eastern, Europe, South Asia, the Indian subcontinent, East Asia, the Pacific Rim, or any New Zealander with at least one parent, grandparent or great grandparent with an Indian heritage.

Most early New Zealand Indians were of Punjabi or Gujarati descent.[2] Indian New Zealanders are the fastest growing Kiwi ethnic group, and the second largest group of New Zealand Asians.[3]♙The largest number of indians living in New Zealand are from Fiji. The fourth largest language in New Zealand is Fiji Hindi, shown in the 2013 census.
