MĀTAURANGA MĀORI IN THE ENVIRONMENT COURT – Rachel Hogg, 2009

See how mātauranga Māori has been presented to, and considered by, the Environment Court in the past.

Presenting information to the Environment Court can be daunting, and may raise many questions. “Will the Court understand my point of view?” “Can I speak in te reo?” “Can I use whakatauki?” This paper discusses the different ways indigenous knowledge (mātauranga Māori) has been presented to the Environment Court in the past, and the extent to which the Court balances mātauranga Māori with other considerations. Understanding how your knowledge will be received will make you more confident about presenting to the Court.

“To ask my father what mātauranga Māori is would be like asking a fish what water is.”
