Tuna: NIWA working with Ngāti Maniapoto

Maniapoto Māori Trust Board and NIWA worked collaboratively during 2018-19 to support Ngāti Maniapoto whānau to reconnect with and participate in the assessment of their waterways according to their values for freshwater. In December 2019, as part of the development of a Cultural Assessment Framework for Maniapoto, the research team delivered marae-based tuna wānanga for kaitiaki to explore, learn and reconnect with this taonga species.
