Te Ao Māori
Throughout this introduction to coastal flooding, coastal erosion and river flooding hazards in Te Taitokerau, we have interwoven Kōrero shared by Māori voices, offering traditional knowledge and views about natural hazards.
"If you look at the topography of the land where I stay, you can see that most of it was once under water".
"We think of natural hazards as being connected to our taiao, which is connected to our wellbeing".
"Flooding is a normal occurrence for us as Māori."
