Māori and the Environment: Kaitiaki

By Rachael Selby, Pātaka Moore, Malcolm Mulholland

Māori and the Environment: Kaitiaki

This collection of articles discusses the impact of changes in Aotearoa New Zealand's natural environment due to factors such as climate change, pollution and degradation of waterways and land, pest control and environmental management policy. It highlights Māori perspectives on these issues and actions that Māori have taken to maintain and restore the environment. These contributions demonstrate that the relationship that Māori have with the environment through kaitiakitanga has sound environmental principles and provide a reminder of obligations for future generations of all New Zealanders.

This collection of articles discusses the impact of changes in Aotearoa New Zealand's natural environment due to factors such as climate change, pollution and degradation of waterways and land, pest control and environmental management policy. It highlights Māori perspectives on these issues and actions that Māori have taken to maintain and restore the environment. These contributions demonstrate that the relationship that Māori have with the environment through kaitiakitanga has sound environmental principles and provide a reminder of obligations for future generations of all New Zealanders.

With local, regional and central government decisions about the environment continuing to be based on a least expensive option rather than on the most sustainable, the book suggests that Māori should take a lead role as active kaitiaki to promote sound principles in the wider community for the benefit of all.

Product Review

"While gaining a greater appreciation of how kaitiakitanga can be at whānau, hapū and iwi level, I was humbled by those who had fought for decades to protect streams and wetlands...After many chapters outlining the destruction...it became apparent that we can build and strengthen our relationships with iwi...[to reach] a common goal - restoration of our indigenous biodiversity."Debs Martin - Forest and Bird
"This book should really convince the reader of the necessity of giving Māori their lead role as kaitiaki to promote sound principles in the wider community for the benefit of all." Naida Mulligan - Southland Times
