Description

This article examines how Western scientific knowledge and Indigenous knowledge can be integrated into an environmental management and restoration plan that better reflects Indigenous Peoples' aspirations and expectations for a healthier future across generations. It examines the case of a Aotearoa New Zealand Māori population and the Tāngonge wetlands, an area they had historically been dependent on for their economic livelihood, health and well-being but had been dispossed of and heavily modified. It explores how the Tāngonge Restoration Group juxtaposed technical hydrology data with manawhenua knowledge about the Tāngonge in the work of the to develop a management and restoration plan for the wetlands.
