We are committed to working with Māori to build strong, connected and successful whānau, hapū and iwi and protect our natural resources.
To do that, we know we need to maintain our relationships with mana whenua. We need to have clear goals and aims which let us track how we are doing. We also need to be open to new ways of doing things, and we need to help taurahere/mātāwaka to participate fully in whole of community issues (eg, responses to natural and other emergencies).
This partnership can be seen in action through mana whenua representation in Greater Wellington groups, committees, projects and land management arrangements.
