Dual names proposed for Fiordland’s sounds and inlets

20 May 2019


The New Zealand Geographic Board Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB) is inviting submissions on proposals to create dual Māori–English names for 16 sounds and inlets in Fiordland.

The NZGB says restoring traditional Ngāi Tahu names alongside well-known and established English names will recognise the significance of both names and provide a window to rich stories in both Māori and English.

Two well-known visitor destinations; Milford Sound/Piopiotahi and Doubtful Sound/Patea already have dual names.

The NZGB acknowledges that most of the sounds and inlets in Fiordland are, in strict geographic terms, fiords. However, the Board agreed to retain ‘Sound’ and ‘Inlet’ in the proposed official names because of their long-established common use.

The proposals are to alter:
Bligh Sound to Hāwea / Bligh Sound
Nancy Sound to Hinenui / Nancy Sound
Bradshaw Sound to Kaikiekie / Bradshaw Sound
Edwardson Sound to Moana-whenua-pōuri / Edwardson Sound
Preservation Inlet to Rakituma / Preservation Inlet
Chalky Inlet to Taiari / Chalky Inlet
Charles Sound to Taiporoporo / Charles Sound
Caswell Sound to Taitetimu / Caswell Sound
Dusky Sound to Tamatea / Dusky Sound
Thompson Sound to Te Awa-o-Tū / Thompson Sound
Long Sound to Te Awaroa / Long Sound
Sutherland Sound to Te Hāpua / Sutherland Sound
George Sound to Te Houhou / George Sound
Cunaris Sound to Te Korowhakaunu / Cunaris Sound
Breaksea Sound to Te Puaitaha / Breaksea Sound
Dagg Sound to Te Rā / Dagg Sound

Consultation on the proposals is open from 20 May 2019 until 20 August 2019.

Submissions supporting or objecting to any or all of these proposals can be made online, emailed to NZGBsubmissions@linz.govt.nz, or posted to The Secretary of the
New Zealand Geographic Board, c/o Land Information New Zealand, PO Box 5501, Wellington 6145.

The NZGB is expected to consider submissions at its next meeting following consultation, in October 2019.

Pānui Pāpāho

20 o Haratua 2019

Ngā ingoa takirua kua tonoa mō ngā kūiti moana me ngā kokoru o Fiordland.

Tēnei rā te karanga a Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa (NZGB) kia tukua mai he tāpaenga whakaaro mō ngā tono kia takirua ngā ingoa Māori–Ingarihi mō ētahi kūiti moana me ētahi kokorua 16 i Fiordland.

Hei tā te NZGB ki te whakahokia ake ngā ingoa taketake a Ngāi Tahu ki te taha o ngā ingoa Ingarihi rongonui kua roa e whakahuahuatia ana kua mōhiotia the hira o ngā ingoa e rua, kua whakatuwherahia he matapihi ki ngā kōrero tuku iho rangatira ki te reo Māori me te reo Ingarihi.

Kua ingoa takirua kē ētahi wāhi rongonui e toroa ana e te wae tāpoi; ko Milford Sound/Piopiotahi me Doubtful Sound/Pātea.

E whakaae ana te NZGB, he tai matapari kē te nuinga atu o ngā kūiti moana me ngā kokoru o Fiordland ki te whāia ngā tikanga matawhenua tūturu. Heoi anō, i whakaae te Poari kia mau tonu ko te 'Kūiti Moana' me te 'Kokoru" i ngā ingoa mana e tonoa ana i te tūroa o te ingoa me te roa e whakahuahuatia ana.

E whakaarohia ana kia whakarerekētia a:
Bligh Sound kia Hāwea / Bligh Sound
Nancy Sound kia Hinenui / Nancy Sound
Bradshaw Sound kia Kaikiekie / Bradshaw Sound
Edwardson Sound kia Moana-whenua-pōuri / Edwardson Sound
Preservation Inlet kia Rakituma / Preservation Inlet
Chalky Inlet kia Taiari / Chalky Inlet
Charles Sound kia Taiporoporo / Charles Sound
Caswell Sound kia Taitetimu / Caswell Sound
Dusky Sound kia Tamatea / Dusky Sound
Thompson Sound kia Te Awa-o-Tū / Thompson Sound
Long Sound kia Te Awaroa / Long Sound
Sutherland Sound kia Te Hāpua / Sutherland Sound
George Sound kia Te Houhou / George Sound
Cunaris Sound kia Te Korowhakaunu / Cunaris Sound
Breaksea Sound kia Te Puaitaha / Breaksea Sound
Dagg Sound kia Te Rā / Dagg Sound

Ka tuwhera ngā whakawhitinga whakaaro mō ngā ingoa ā te 20 o Haratua ki te 20 o Hereturikōkā 2019.

Ko ngā tāpaenga whakaaro e tautoko ana e whakahē ana rānei i tētahi, i te katoa rānei o ngā tono nei ka taea te tuku mai ā-tuihono, me īmēra mai rānei ki a NZGBsubmissions@linz.govt.nz, me pōhi mai rānei ki Te Hēkeretari o Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa, c/o Land Information New Zealand, Pouaka Poutāpeta 5501, Te Whanga-nui-a-Taru 6145.

Ko te tūmanako o te NZGB ka wānangahia ngā tāpaenga whakaaro i tana hui o muri mai i ngā whakawhitinga kōrero, ā te Whiringa-ā-nuku 2019.

Ka mutu

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>>
