Work with mana whenua to identify, protect and conserve sites of cultural significance, including wahi tapu.
Incorporate appropriate interpretation, design items, or artworks which connect visitors with our Maori identity, heritage and culture.
Designs can help enhance the mauri of the park by:
- engaging with local mana whenua to learn about the place and to plan appropriate actions and restoration activities for the park
- incorporating information, signage or interactive elements that reveal stories about the significance of features within the park. This could be a particular plant species or a food source that the rivers provided for Maori
- identifying key environmental aspects of the park which are particularly degraded, and working to restore these back to their full function.
