About this book

Situating Māori Ecological Knowledge (MEK) within traditional environmental knowledge (TEK) frameworks, this book recognizes that indigenous ecological knowledge contributes to our understanding of how we live in our world (our world views), and in turn, the ways in which humans adapt to climate change. As an industrialized nation, Aotearoa/New Zealand (A/NZ) has responsibilities and obligations to other Pacific dwellers, including its indigenous populations. In this context, this book seeks to discuss how A/NZ can benefit from the wider Pacific strategies already in place; how to meet its global obligations to reducing GHG; and how A/NZ can utilize MEK to achieve substantial inroads into adaptation strategies and practices. In all respects, Māori tribal groups here are well-placed to be key players in adaptation strategies, policies, and practices that are referenced through Māori/Iwi traditional knowledge.

Reviews

“Readers from social and cultural anthropology, indigenous studies and other related disciplines interested in the topic of climate change will find Lyn Carter’s study an interesting read. … The combination of institutional analysis and information from case studies provides interesting insights to both scholars, indigenous people, and policymakers in New Zealand, Oceania, and beyond.” (Lena Borlinghaus, Anthropological Notebooks, Vol. 25 (1), 2019)
