Johnny Lee Clary, a former imperial wizard but who now opposes the KKK told New Zealand media that paraphernalia is being distributed in Auckland to recruit young members.
"As far as I know it's happening in Auckland right now," he told Radio New Zealand from his home in Alabama.
"There's a clan leader in Auckland and he is putting out all kinds of literature and paraphernalia."
He warned the organisation was targeting young people from poor backgrounds.
"They don't go where people are happy with money in their pocket," said Mr Clary.
"They pick on the poor, the miserable, the down and out," he added.
Mr Clary claimed that online registrations had increased since President Barack Obama's election.
