Helping Māori to access wāhi tapu
Sometimes Māori find it difficult to access wāhi tapu (sacred places) on private land or to cross private land to sites of particular significance.
Access to wāhi tapu is important for Māori. Some iwi authorities are working with private landowners to arrange better access to wāhi tapu.
Herenga ā Nuku may be able to help explore opportunities to improve access by Māori to sites. This could be through using existing access rights such as unformed legal roads. And it could be through negotiation and agreement with private landowners.
