There is a wealth of experience and understanding of the ocean and management of marine resources that lies at the heart of Maori traditional knowledge. We live in a fast changing world with massive impacts on natural systems, but traditional knowledge, 'mataraunga maori' is highly relevant to today's challenges. Where western science gives us powerful analytical tools and masses of information, traditional knowledge brings to the table experience and careful observation and experimentation over very long time scales. This knowledge and management practices are especially valuable because marine systems are so complex and variable. We will make every effort to develop this section over time by engaging with Maori and assisting them in their role of nurturing applying their knowledge systems.

Author(s): Kaikoura Coastal Guardians

The Te Korowai o Te Tai O Marokura - Kaikoura Coastal Marine Guardians have released their latest newsletter and are working on a marine strategy. They are also still keen to hear from people.
http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/” title=“http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/”>http://fishnet.co.nz/teamkorowai/

This is an abstract from their newsletter:
We are very close to presenting a variety of protection tools (and measures) via our strategy and will be seeking feedback from all interested parties including the Rūnanga, Kaikoura community and user groups, both local and further afield.
Throughout this process, we must remind ourselves constantly of our purpose and our vision and this was summed up superbly recently, by one of our members (Tony Brett).
“Remember the gifts come before the gains and the gains may not always be immediately apparent!”
This timely reminder puts into perspective what Te Korowai sets out to achieve and that in order to protect our resources for future generations, we must look to what is best for everyone, put aside individual partiality (the gift), so that all will benefit in the future (the gain).

This file has a .pdf extensionKaitiakitanga: A Definitive Introduction to the Holistic World View of the Maori
Author(s): Rev. Maori Marsden

This paper introduces the reader to the concept of kaitiakitanga. The concept is intrduced in the context of the Resource Management Act and its pupose of promoting ‘sustainable’ management of natural and physical resources, and the provision in the Act for the relationship of Maori with their lands and taonga to be recongised and provided for. The paper then explores a range of topics: fundamental knowledge, the ‘Maori World View’, the value systems derived from them, a holistic approach to life. the application of fundamental principles (kaupapa) to life situations, Maori customs (tikanga) integrated into their value systems of their culture. The paper has also shown how kaitiakitanga, through the use of tikanga Maori, can be applied to resolve the rights of tangata whenua and their role in environmental and conservation policy.
