From the executive summary:
The approach to developing the Rangatiratanga report included:
- reviewing the literature on Rangatiratanga
- interviewing Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau with leadership roles across Mana Whenua and urban marae, wāhine and rangatahi
- developing a contemporary framework for Rangatiratanga expressed by respondents interviewed for this report which enabled reassessment of the indicators and narrative in light of a better understanding of Rangatiratanga.
Our respondents focused on enablement, autonomy and leadership as expressions of Rangatiratanga. Where these key Māori values were exhibited, we found vibrant Māori communities that were thriving. Respondents also raised concerns about access to useful, more reliable data, and said that national statistics did not reveal the positive changes and achievements in Māori communities.
