Kaitiaki is the Maori concept of guardianship, for the sky, the sea, the land and its fresh water. 

A kaitiaki is a guardian, whose responsibility for the wellbeing of environment and community is kaitiakitanga, a long- established Māori system of environmental management which is holistic, at peace with the environment, and prevents intrusions that cause environmental damage. 

Tuko Iho means ‘that which has been passed down to us’; an umbilical cord, a collective inheritance.

Following an AGM on 21 February 2021, actions have been directed towards addressing issues of medical concern, on water and on poison issues.
