This research will enable Ngāti Hori ki Kohupatiki to participate as kaitiaki of the Karamu Stream. Methods will be investigated for converting Ngāti Hori’s cultural information about customary fisheries into technical information about flow levels in the Karamu stream. A model will be created to facilitate Māori engagement on water flow allocation in New Zealand where cultural values in fisheries habitat are dependent on the restoration of water flows within a water body.
