Abstract or Summary
  • This paper is a compilation of several themes that addresses how Te Arawa iwi Trusts are utilising kaitiakitanga; traditional methods, practices and customs to manage freshwater environments and freshwater fisheries.  Te Arawa is a central north island indigenous tribe of Aotearoa/New Zealand. Several deeds of settlement have been signed with Te Arawa iwi (tribal groups) and the Crown. The settlements have included regulations, protocols and cultural rights to manage freshwater and freshwater fisheries, within the Rotorua and Waikato region.  Te Arawa iwi Trusts have freshwater and fisheries management responsibilities over significant freshwater lakes, rivers, springs, and tributaries. This paper addresses the challenges and successes of delivering kaitiakitanga, traditional customary practices for freshwater and fisheries management. This paper will be delivered by Te Arawa iwi representative to present their experiences, aspirations, and goals to deliver outcomes for iwi members, a juxtaposition of maintaining iwi traditions and customs and working within a legislative framework. The key themes are; - Kaitiakitanga- traditional methods, practices and customs; - Nga taonga ika- indigenous treasured fisheries - Tau koura –a traditional method utilised for sustainable management; and a traditional method for aquaculture:  a non profit approach to sustain cultural customs. - Regulation, legislation, settlement; experiences of working within a legislative process and with Crown agencies. - Economics (Politics) of freshwater in Aotearoa/New Zealand: Freshwater management/ownership; allocation issues and habitat restoration. - Nga taonga ika- Indigenous treasured fisheries at risk; Koaro- Galaxias brevipinnis- a pilot study; and Kakahi- Hyridella menziesii.
