NZPI Conference 2017 - Changing Places

Tina Porou
Te Mana o te Wai

Freshwater for Maori has always been a sacred and protected resource. The current state of NZ’s freshwater management and the issues of equitable access to freshwater have has been at the forefront of the minds of tangata whenua as the increasing degradation of water continues to challenge the unique role that iwi, hapu and whanau hold as kaitiaki. This presentation focuses on the perspectives on water, the framework of Te Mana o te Wai and the aspirations and work of the Iwi Chairs Forum and the Freshwater Iwi Leaders Group in trying to ensure that water is protected and used sustainably and equitably as this land’s first people. It will touch on planning mechanisms, engagement with the Crown and collaborative work across the country that iwi, hapu and whanau are undertaking to protect this sacred taonga.
