Proposal type:
Project Seeding Grant
Lay summary
To achieve the longer term goal of contributing to reconstituting the matauranga (cultural and scientific knowledge and understanding) of sustainable food production and ecosystems at Tangonge and lifting the health and well being of the people, we first need to explore the tangata whenua (people of the land) grievances surrounding Tangonge that have burned so strongly for so long. We need to identify what wellbeing outcomes the tangata whenua communities believe and understand can be achieved from first, the return of the site and second, its restoration.
