This aspiration is about recognising, promoting and protecting the health and wellbeing of the Maunga and his status as a tupuna. By doing this we:

  • Recognise Taranaki as an Ancestor
  • Enhance and maintain holistic wellbeing of Taranaki
  • Provide for an integrated approach to the governance and management of Taranaki Maunga and his health and wellbeing
  • Develop a ‘Whole of Mountain Strategy for Taranaki
  • Involve iwi, the Crown, government and community in the governance and management of Taranaki
  • Develop a set of values to encompass the natural environment and features of the Maunga and the interrelationship of all people with Taranaki Maunga, and include these values in the deed of settlement and legislation.

TE MANA O TE KĀHUI

This aspiration recognises and provides for the mana and relationship of Ngā Iwi o Taranaki to out ancestor by:

  • Recognising the relationship of Ngā iwi o Taranaki and Taranaki Maunga in the Deed and Legislation
  • Inclusion of Iwi values in the Deed and Legislation
  • Providing for Iwi participation in governance and management decision making
  • Supporting a ‘Whole of Mountain’ strategy covering any activity on Taranaki Maunga
  • Resourcing to be able to discharge responsibilities and obligations

These values will provide context to the status of Taranaki and provide guidance to relevant decision makers. They will also require people exercising functions and powers relating to Taranaki, or activities on Taranaki that affect Taranaki, to give appropriate consideration to the values and status of Taranaki when exercising such functions and powers. This obligation will affect central government agencies as well as local authorities.
