From the executive summary:
The approach to developing the Wairuatanga report included:
- reviewing the literature on Wairuatanga
- interviewing Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau with leadership roles across Mana Whenua and urban marae, wāhine and rangatahi
- developing a contemporary framework for Wairuatanga expressed by respondents interviewed for this report, which enabled reassessment of the indicators and narrative in light of a better understanding of Wairuatanga.
Wairuatanga can be described as the distinctive identity or spirituality of people and places. It contributes to a sense of belonging and connects Māori heritage with its contemporary context. The purpose of this report is to show the many ways in which the value of Wairuatanga is refl ected in the cultural and business life of Tāmaki Makaurau.
