to restore Aotearoa's kaurilands
Leading kauri dieback scientists are backing the use of mātauranga Māori, or indigenous knowledge, in the battle to restore our kaurilands.
They say it's been a long journey to get to this point due to resistance and institutional racism from academia and western science.
However, the work by rongoā Māori practitioners with the ancient kauri trees suggests a multidisciplinary approach is the best way forward.
The future's looking brighter for one new generation of kauri trees. Rongoā Māori practitioners claim they're close to finding a cure for kauri dieback disease, and scientists accept a breakthrough could be close.
