Better information for Māori land owners

Website upgrade is an important first step in providing better information for Māori land owners


The launch of the upgraded WhenuaViz website marks an important milestone in the rollout of the new Whenua Māori Programme.

Māori Development Minister Nanaia Mahuta announced the cross-government programme in February this year. The Whenua Māori Programme, co-led by Te Puni Kōkiri and the Ministry of Justice, aims to stimulate new opportunities for whānau to realise their aspirations for Māori freehold land.

One of the key initiatives of the programme is the development of a Whenua Knowledge Hub. The Whenua Knowledge Hub will be a standalone website that will provide a wealth of information, digital tools and maps for Māori land owners on all aspects of whenua development, from succession through to growth opportunities.

“We’re keen to ensure Māori land owners have access to the best support and knowledge available about their whenua so they can make informed decisions”, says Te Puni Kōkiri Toihautū Michelle Hippolite.

She says the upgrade of the WhenuaViz website in partnership with Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research is an important first step in paving the way for future collaboration.

The WhenuaViz website upgrade makes it much simpler for whānau to generate customised land summary reports. The reports include information about soil properties, climate and potential land uses for individual land blocks. There is also a short video guide to help whānau navigate the site.



General Manager Māori Partnerships, Holden Hohaia of Manaaki Whenua says, “Knowledge is power and the WhenuaViz website holds some valuable information for Māori land owners who want to sustainably use their land.”

He pai ake ngā momo pārongo e wātea ana ki ngā kaipupuri whenua Māori nā te whakahoutanga o tētahi pae tukutuku

Ko te whakahoutanga o te pae tukutuku o WhenuaViz, tētahi tutukinga nui i raro i te kaupapa hou o te Whenua Māori Programme.

I pānuitia tēnei kaupapa kāwanatanga e te Minita Whanaketanga Māori, e Nanaia Mahuta, i te marama o Huitanguru i tēnei tau. He mea ārahi te Whenua Māori Programme e Te Puni Kōkiri me Te Tāhū o Te Ture, otirā, ko te whāinga nui, he tiritiri i te one e puāwai ai ngā wawata o ngā whānau mō te whenua Māori.

Ko tētahi o ngā wāhi matua o te hōtaka, ko te whakatūnga o tētahi Whenua Knowledge Hub. Ka tū motuhake te pae tukutuku o te Whenua Knowledge Hub, e mau ana i te huhua o ngā kōrero, o ngā taputapu ā-mati, o ngā mahere hoki mā ngā kaipupuri whenua Māori e pā ana ki ngā āhuatanga katoa o te whakapakari whenua, arā, mai i te rironga tae atu ki ngā ara whakapakari whenua.

"Ko te mea nui ki a mātou, me eke te kounga o ngā mahi tautoko me ngā mōhiotanga ki te taumata e tika ana mā ngā kaipupuri whenua Māori e āhei ai rātou ki te āta whiriwhiri i ō rātou ake whakataunga," te kī a te Toihautū o Te Puni Kōkiri, a Michelle Hippolite.

Hei tāna, he tīmatanga noa te whakahoutanga o te pae tukutuku o WhenuaViz i te taha o te tari o Manaaki Whenua, i runga i te tūmanako, ka mahi ngātahi tonu rātou i roto i te wā.

Nā te pae tukutuku o WhenuaViz, he māmā ake te whakaputa pūrongo e hāngai ana ki ia poraka whenua. Kei roto i aua pūrongo ngā kōrero mō ngā āhuatanga o te one, o te āhuarangi me ngā momo ara mahi e hāngai ana ki tēnā me tēnā poraka whenua. Kei reira hoki tētahi ataata poto hei ārahi i ngā whānau ki te rapu kōrero i te pae tukutuku.

Hei tā te Kaiwhakahaere Māori ki Manaaki Whenua, hei tā Holden Hohaia, "He mana tō te mātauranga, he nui tonu ngā mōhiotanga ki te pae tukutuku o WhenuaViz hei āwhina i ngā kaipupuri whenua Māori ki te whakamahi i ō rātou whenua."
