Submissions open on Māori Arts and Crafts Institute Bill

21 December 2018


Submissions are open on the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute Vesting Bill

The Chairperson of the Māori Affairs Committee, Rino Tirikatene, is calling for public submissions on the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute Vesting Bill. The bill seeks to transfer the assets and liabilities of the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute (NZMACI) to the Te Puia New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute limited partnership, which is a joint trust of iwi partners.

The bill would fulfill an agreement made in August 2017 between the Crown and trustees to introduce vesting legislation that would provide for the transfer.

At present the NZMACI’s function is to foster Māori culture and the practice of Māori arts and crafts. The institute also maintains and develops scenic and tourist attractions in the Rotorua district. This bill would provide for the Te Puia New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute limited partnership to continue to fulfil these functions. It also includes provisions for the partnership’s performance to be reported on annually.

Tell the Māori Affairs Committee what you think
Send your submission on the bill by midnight on 22 February 2019.

Ellen Rykers on The Dig: Community Conservation – The Solution To The Biodiversity Crisis?

There are backyard trapping networks doing their bit for Predator Free 2050, farmers planting native trees along their waterways, and iwi protecting whenua rāhui. There are 62 biodiversity sanctuaries across 56,000 hectares, with around two-thirds of them community-led. There are citizen scientists counting birds in their backyards and landowners conserving habitat in 3,500 Queen Elizabeth II National Trust covenants.

It’s increasingly clear that a government agency alone cannot combat the biodiversity crisis successfully. These grass-roots initiatives are a growing resource in the conservation toolbox. More>>
