What is kaitiakitanga, guardianship, and how important is it in our communities? Xena Tautari is currently studying for her doctorate at Te Whare Wanganga o Awanuiarangi and says in the Hokianga, where her work is focused, there's an urgent need to understand the traditions around kaitiakitanga while those who retain the knowledge are still alive. She says one of her goals is to record the korero around kaitiakitanga and share it.
