From the executive summary:
The approach to developing the Whanaungatanga report included:
- reviewing the literature on Whanaungatanga
- interviewing Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau with leadership roles across Mana Whenua, urban marae, wāhine and rangatahi
- developing a contemporary framework for Whanaungatanga expressed by respondents interviewed for this report, which enabled reassessment of the indicators and narrative in light of a better understanding of Whanaungatanga.
The value of Whanaungatanga is shown in contemporary Tāmaki Makaurau in many ways. These include the customary practices and activities of ancestral and community marae, kapa haka, in how Māori businesses organise themselves and operate, in customary fishing rights and sustaining relationships with whānau.
