    Te Whare Whakakotahi : Nuturing human potential with Aroha: A thesis submitted to partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Masters of Resources Studies at Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki Lincoln University
    (Lincoln University, 2002) Bishara, Isaac James
    Māori experience of service delivery, education programme development and resource allocation at Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University vary in degree across a continuum of negative to positive. The social milieu of dynamic tertiary institutional environments, local, national and global forces impacting how those institutions determine their delivery of service and prevalent Aotearoa/New Zealand issues regarding Māori access, retention and academic success in tertiary education shape the relationships and degree of authentic participation in tertiary activity for Māori students. Māori students of Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University have personal and collective choices to make in relation to their academic responsibilities/ response-abilities in context to these forces and impacts. The discourse of Māori access to participatory democracy as it relates to Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University binds takata whenua of this area to that institution. Māori student access to that discursive process remains marginal. Despite that discrepancy precedence for holistic community beyond the rhetoric of discourse abounds as example throughout the coevolutionary history /herstory of the whānau of Te Whare Whakakotahi and Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University over the last decade. The rhetoric of participatory democracy is transcended through the autonomous expression of tikaka Māori manifested in proactive processes of whakawhanaukataka via the conduit of Aroha ki te takata. Though issues of marginalisation, hegemony and dis-empowerment still impact Māori student welfare here at Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University, their commitment to practicing living the living practice of Tikaka Māori specific to their needs serves to inculcate and perpetuate self autonomous values that do not require the justification and affirmation of external forces. The result of this has been the continued support and perpetuation of community wide positivity experienced by people of multiple cultures, throughout the decade, nurturing trans-cultural relationships the implicit outcome of practicing tikaka Māori Illustrating the we-dentity potential of whānau as being able to encompass local, national and international dimensions highlights great opportunity for an integrated united community inclusive of takata whenua, academic staff, and students of diverse origins sharing dynamic personal gifts and abilities that have the potential to affect positive outcomes for authentic community beyond rhetoric. Though the whānau of Te Whare Whakakotahi have been successfully manifesting this potential over the last decade this vision is yet to be realised to its utmost degree by the stakeholders of Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University. Te Awhioraki has shown the way, the challenge remains for Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki/Lincoln University to participate authentically in the future of Māori student and wider community evolution in the next millennium. How will you respond?

    Landscape Review: Māori landscapes
    (School of Landscape Architecture, Lincoln University | Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki, 2022-12) Bowring, Jacqueline; Toueir, Nada; Tremewan, T
    This special issue of Landscape Review is a significant one in its focus on Māori landscapes, from a range of perspectives and through different lenses. Thinking of Māori landscapes brings reflection on place, identity and what it means to be here in Aotearoa New Zealand. And it also is a time for farewells and welcomes, as well as a pause for remembering ngā mate, those we have lost.

    Stories from the land: Revealing plural narratives within one landscape
    (School of Landscape Architecture, Lincoln University, Canterbury, 2022-12-12) Davis, Shannon
    Landscape narrative theory initiates new ways of understanding landscape. This paper explores the concept of landscape narrative within a case study site rich in the cultural history of Aotearoa New Zealand: Maungakiekie | One Tree Hill and Cornwall Park, in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. It discusses the complexity of narrative representation within historically significant public spaces and considers the research question first asked by Potteiger and Purinton (1998a) in Landscape Narratives: Design Practices for Telling Stories: ‘how can pluralistic landscape narratives be revealed within shared public landscapes, responding to multiple histories, and relating to a diverse contemporary culture?’ This paper concludes by proposing an ‘open’ narrative approach to revealing historical landscapes, as a method to elicit plural ‘readings’ that traverse conventional boundaries of governance, time and ‘official’ interpretation. In so doing, the approach promotes greater connection, across time, with people and place.

    An aquaculture feasibility study for Ngai Tuahuriri: Presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Master of Science in Resource Management
    (Lincoln University, 1991) Came, Sharron; Cowan, Cameron; Gravatt, Adrienne; Lambert, Ray; Morgan, Kate; Napp, Greg; Ryan, Stuart; Visser, Andre; Waterhouse, Emma; Welsh, Craig; White, James; Woudberg, Lesley
    This report assesses the feasibility of a sustainable aquaculture development for the Ngai Tuahuriri of Tuahiwi. The report focuses on a site situated 2-4 kilometres north of the Ashley River/Saltwater Creek Estuary mouth, in Pegasus Bay, Canterbury. Background to the social, physical, ecological and legal characteristics of any proposed development are detailed along with an account of aquaculture in New Zealand. Species thought to have an aquaculture potential are evaluated within a framework incorporating available information and a risk assessment procedure. Evaluation of the species with potential for aquaculture indicates that none are suitable for the Ashworth Ponds site. The report also provides information and contact sources relevant to aquaculture options at other sites in Canterbury. Finally sustainable harvesting of tuatua/surf clams from the subtidal and intertidal zones is comprehensively dealt with in a management strategy. This provides an alternative to aquaculture for Ngai Tuahuriri at the Ashworth Ponds site.

    Māori landscapes
    (School of Landscape Architecture, Faculty of Environment, Society and Design, Lincoln University | Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki, 2022-12-12) Toueir, Nada
    Globally and across disciplines, a focus on Indigenous knowledge is rapidly evolving. For landscape architecture, this trend is of particular interest, as our discipline works at the intersection of people and land, a rich and fertile zone of Indigenous knowledge. For Aotearoa New Zealand, it is te ao Māori, the Māori world, that embodies the Indigenous presence, and within which landscape architecture is immersed. This special issue of Landscape Review – consisting of research papers, reflections and a book review – is dedicated to Māori landscapes.
