1.2 Māori and mana whenua partnerships
Whai wāhitanga Māori (tae noa ki te mana whenua)
We have an obligation to ensure the views of mana whenua are heard.
What we do
We ensure the special position of mana whenua Ngāti Toa Rangatira and Taranaki Whānui ki te Upoko o te Ika is acknowledged and reflected in the way we make decisions about the city and its resources. We will ensure their contribution to Wellington’s heritage and future is fully and publicly acknowledged.
We work with mana whenua to explore opportunities for the city emerging from settlement of their Treaty of Waitangi claims and engage with the wider Māori community in particular on issues of specific interest to them.
- We will continue to work in partnership with mana whenua on the basis of the specific recognitions set out in the memoranda of understanding.
- We will work to ensure Māori needs and aspirations are reflected in the work of the Council.
- We will work with the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust to host Waitangi Day celebrations in the city.
Measuring our performanceTop
Our targets for 2014/15 are:
- maintain a positive relationship with our mana whenua partners
- at least 85% of Māori residents are satisfied or neutral (neither satisfied nor dissatisfied) with regard to their involvement with decision-making.
