E hari ana mātou ki te whakarewa i tā mātou Kaupapahere Hononga Kaitiakitanga, arā, ko Tiakina tēnā. Mā Tiakina e hāpai i te kaupapa Māori i roto i ā mātou nei mahi pupuri taonga, e hiki hoki i te mana Kaitiaki (nō ratou ngā taonga tuku iho) ki ngā Taonga Māori. Māna anō e akiaki i tā mātou mahi tahi me te iwi Māori i roto i te pono, ā, e whakaaetia hoki te rangatiratanga o te Māori ki ā rātou ake taonga. Kei te whakatinana anō hoki te kaupapahere nei i te oati pūranga taonga a Ngā Taonga, arā, kia whakawhānaunga mātou ki ngā iwi, ngā hapū me ngā whānau.
We're pleased to launch Tiakina, our Kaitiaki Relationship Framework. It's the latest development in our aspirations to be kaupapa-centred and uphold the rights of Kaitiaki (enduring traditional owners) of Taonga Māori. It also aims to build more collaboration and trust with Māori and allow them to exercise mana and control over how their taonga are made available. This framework reflects the historic and ongoing archival commitment of Ngā Taonga to build meaningful relationships with iwi, hapū and whānau.
