Kaupapa Maori

Kaupapa Māori has been a catalyst in building positive relationships between Council, tangata whenua and Māori.
Kaupapa Māori:
  • provides an interface with Māori communities, organisations and individuals, marae, runanga, iwi, hapū and whānau

  • designs and develops Māori cultural training for staff and other external organisations

  • contributes and implements appropriate Māori tikanga (protocols) for local, national and international visitors and dignitaries

  • provides Māori protocol, translations and historical advice or sources of information for Council management and staff, and for elected members

  • works with the Te Arawa Standing Committee and reviews Council policy that affects Māori

  • develops methods to provide opportunities for Māori to participate in local government decision-making
