Poutuarongo Kaitiakitanga Pūtaiao

Bachelor of Environmental Management

Kaitiakitanga Pūtaiao studies explore the roles and responsibilities of tangata whenua to ngā taonga tuku iho (our inherited treasures) and how to uplift and maintain the wellbeing of the environment from a kaupapa Māori perspective.

Engage with like-minded environmentalists and gain an understanding of a kaupapa Māori approach to horticulture and agriculture. Examine biodiversity on Kāpiti Island and monitor a freshwater body for your hapū. Learn to identify native birds and their calls, indigenous plants and their traditional uses. Sustainable management planning for farms, eel fisheries, wetlands and other natural habitats feature strongly. Build an awareness of alternative methods for sustainable and eco-efficient building construction.

As a graduate of the degree programme you will be equipped with the tools to support hapū self-determination and development aspirations for te taiao (our environment) within tikanga Māori and other tikanga management frameworks.
