Astronism in Niue refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the New Zealand territory of Niue. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Niue which is under the direct jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of New Zealand, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
