Te āhuatunga a te tūranga/About the role
Working in Te Kāhui Takutai Moana, we are responsible for engaging with iwi, hāpu and whānau who have sought recognition of their customary rights in the takutai Moana (common marine and coastal area).
In June, the Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations announced the Crown's new approach to engaging with Takutai Moana applications. The new collaborative approach seeks to achieve fair, transparent, and timely determination of takutai moana applications.
In order to implement this new approach, we are talking directly with iwi, hapū and whanau applicants to find out how we can best support them progress their Takutai Moana applications. If you join us, you will be getting out and about around beautiful Aotearoa, as travel to enable face to face engagement is a key part of our engagement programme with applicants.
In addition to directly engaging with applicants, we also provide high quality advice to the Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations and work with the Crown Law Office on High Court applications.
