Manaaki Whenua – Kaitiakitanga of Urban Settlements Programme

Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research is a Crown Research Institute dedicated to driving innovation in the management of terrestrial biodiversity and land resources. Part of its work focuses on science that supports sustainable, resilient and livable cities, settlements and communities; incorporates cultural values and indigenous knowledge to urban design; and increases community resilience to future change – www.landcareresearch.co.nz/science/living The Kaitiakitanga of Urban Settlements programme was funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation from 2009-2012 and was led by Dr. Shaun Awatere. The programme used an extensive literature review, hui/workshops, and comprehensive case-study research in both Christchurch and Auckland to highlight key barriers and solutions and develop tools, methods and processes to help planners, iwi and hapū groups, and other professionals actively apply mātauranga Māori within urban planning and policy – http://sustainablecities.org.nz/members/shaun-awatere/


Ngā Aho. Inc. Soc. Māori Design Professionals.

Ngā Aho is the national collective of Māori design and planning professionals. Following almost a decade of discussion amongst likeminded designers, artists, architects and planners, Ngā Aho was founded in 2009 as an incorporated society. Ngā Aho pro-actively seeks opportunities to raise awareness, increase knowledge, foster relationships and develop capacity in respect to Māori design and planning kaupapa. Māori cultural aspirations, process and practices are shared and developed through a network which supports and upholds manawhenua – www.ngaaho.maori.nz Following the release of the Urban Design Protocol by the Ministry for the Environment in 2005, members of what later became Ngā Aho held a series of hui to form a response from Māori professionals to the protocol which resulted in the development of the Te Aranga Māori Cultural Landscape Strategy – www.tearanga.maori.nz
Ngā Aho has a steering committee and holds a range of events throughout the year for its members around the country. This includes the hui-a-tau (AGM) hosted at a nominated marae, an event which is grounded through the undertaking of working with the hau kainga (marae community) on a design and/or planning problem for the benefit of the hosting community. Ngā Aho have founded the first Māori Masters in Design, and have teamed up with the Designers Institute of NZ to launch a BEST Design Award for “Aotearoaness“, recognising the collaborative practice of ‘co-design’ between designers and clients and between cultures – www.bestawards.co.nz/entries/nga-aho/
