Cultural and Environmental Values Series | Mana Whenua Statements (cultural impact assessment)

Learn how to demonstrate Kaitiaki obligations to Te Ao Māori and achieve genuine engagement. You will learn about Mana Whenua Statements also known as cultural impact assessments which provide Mana Whenua decisions against the proposal or policy to decision makers.

An understanding of these is fundamental for involvement in developing today’s river management including for research, planning, consultation and operation activities. 

Speaker bio: Julian Williams

Ko Taupiri tooku Maunga

Ko Waikato tooku Awa

Ko Pootatau te tangata

He piko he taniwha

Waikato taniwharau

Tiihei mauriora

I was raised, and attended school, in Ngaaruawaahia before graduating from the University of Waikato with a degree focused on resource and environmental planning. My wife and I have an established consultancy service providing support and engagement for community, marae and council within the governance and environmental space, while enabling quality time with our sons. Currently most of my mahi is focussed on progressing collaborative arrangements to restore and protect the Waikato and Waipaa Rivers, undertake meaningful engagement with Marae and develop mana whenua reports. I currently chair Smart Waikato as a matter of special interest to empower youth through real education to employment pathways.
