Vision

Māori knowledges and planning are informing and improving resilience across a range of natural hazards.

Project description

Māori have obligations to protect the material resources and communities within their tribal regions. Responsibility is undertaken for the wellbeing of others during adversity which enacts the cultural principle of kaitiakitanga (protection, guardianship and leadership).

Thus, Māori knowledge of their local environment, communities and the natural hazards they face can inform planning to build resilience for both tangata whenua, and for wider Aotearoa New Zealand.

The following research projects explore how mātauranga Māori can inform planning at the hapū, iwi and multiple-iwi levels, how this knowledge can be better integrated into the wider planning system, and how it can be harnessed to improve disaster resilience for whānau, hapū and iwi.

  • Whaowhia te Kete Mātauranga: Embedding Mātauranga Māori in Hapū Resilience Plans
    Suzanne Phibbs
    This co-creation project involves the Ngāti Raukawa Northern Marae Collective in an indigenous citizen science research process. The outputs will be draft hapū resilience plans, and the publication of a journal article and conference paper, co-developed with the community.

 

  • Exploring ways Mātauranga Māori can inform joint iwi resilience planning
    Christine Kenney
    This project is exploring ways mātauranga Māori can inform resilience planning across multiple iwi. Key milestones include the organisation of a hui-a-wānanga on mātauranga Māori relating to disaster resilience planning, the creation of a culturally-informed resilience plan, and a journal article and conference presentation.

 

  • Assessing the implications of Resource Management Act reforms on resilience for Māori communities
    Lara Taylor
    This project carries on from research into iwi/hapū management plans (IHMP) by Dr Wendy Saunders and Lucy Kaiser in Phase 1 of the Resilience Challenge. Researchers are undertaking an assessment and analysis of the 2020 RMA reform report for implications on resilience for Māori communities, resulting in a paper or report. They will also test RMA reform findings against resilience indicators on Māori. Findings will be presented at a conference and a journal article submitted.

Wawata

E whakamōhio, e whakapai ana hoki ngā mātauranga me ngā whakamahere Māori i te manawaroa puta noa i ētahi mōrearea taiao.

Whakaahuatanga papatono

He takohanga ō te Māori ki te tiaki i ngā rawa me ngā hapori  i roto i ō rātou ake rohe.  Ka whāia te haepapa mō te oranga o ētahi atu i ngā wā o te raru, otirā ka whakatinanatia te mātāpono ahurea o te kaitiakitanga.

Nō reira ka whakamōhio te Mātauranga Māori o ō rātou ake taiao, hapori me ngā mōrearea taiao i te whakamaheretanga ki te whakatipu i te manawaroa mō ngā tāngata whenua, ā, tatū noa ki Aotearoa whānui.

Ko ngā kaupapa rangahau e whai ake nei ka tūhura i te āhua o te mātauranga Māori ki te whakamōhio i ngā mahi whakamahere i ngā taumata o te hapū, te iwi, me ngā iwi maha hoki, ka pēhea hoki te pāhekoheko pai ake i tēnei mātauranga ki roto i te whānuitanga o te pūnaha whakamahere, ā, me pēhea hoki te whakamahi i tēnei hei whakapai ake i te manawaroa aituā mō ngā whānau, ngā hapū me ngā iwi.

  • Whaowhia te Kete Mātauranga: Embedding Mātauranga Māori in Hapū Resilience Plans
    Suzanne Phibbs
    Ka uru ki tēnei kaupapa hanga-ngātahi te Ngāti Raukawa Northern Marae Collective mā tētahi tukanga rangahau pūtaiao kirirarau iwi taketake. Ko ngā putanga ko ngā mahere manawaroa hukihuki a ngā hapū, me te tānga o tētahi atikara pitopito kōrero me tētahi pepa wānanga, i hangaia ngātahitia me te hapori.

 

  • Exploring ways Mātauranga Māori can inform joint iwi resilience planning | Te tūhura i ngā tikanga e whakamōhio ai te Mātauranga Māori i te whakamahere manawaroa a ngā iwi e mahitahi ana
    Christine Kenney
    E tūhura ana tēnei kaupapa i ngā haurahi e taea ai e te mātauranga Māori te whakamōhio i ngā mahi whakamahere manawaroa puta noa i ētahi iwi maha. Ko ētahi o ngā tūtohu matua ko te whakarite i tētahi hui ā-wānanga o te mātauranga Māori e pā ana ki te whakamehere manawaroa aituā, te hanga i tētahi mahere manawaroa i whai mōhio ā-ahurea, tētahi atikara pitopito kōrero me tētahi whakaaturanga wānanga.

 

  • Assessing the implications of Resource Management Act reforms on resilience for Māori communities | Te aromatawai i ngā hua o ngā whakahoutanga o te Resource Management Act ki te manawaroa o ngā hapori Māori
    Lara Taylor
    Ka whai haere tēnei hōtaka i ngā rangahau ki ngā mahere whakahaere ā-iwi/hapū nā Dr Wendy Saunders rāua ko Lucy Kaiser i te Wāhanga 1 o Kia manawaroa – Ngā Ākina o Te Ao Tūroa. E mahi ana ngā kairangahau i tētahi aromatawai me tētahi arotake o te pūrongo whakahou i te RMA 2020, me ōna pānga i runga i te manawaroa o ngā hapori Māori, ā, ko te hua ko tētahi tuhinga, pūrongo rānei.  Ka whakamātauria hoki e rātou ngā kitenga whakahou i te RMA, ka whakatauritea ki ngā tohu manawaroa i runga i te Māori.  Ka whakaaturia ngā kitenga i tētahi wānanga, ā, ka tukuna hoki tētahi atikara pitopito kōrero.
