TeAo Māori: relationships with soil

Aotearoa-New Zealand has had a long, rich history in understanding and valuing its soils, and it is important to recognise the depth and richness of Māori knowledge / Te Ao Māori that existed before colonisation and modern science.

We hope this section will generate some interest among the soil science family in understanding Māori–soil relationships, and the role these relationships could play in safeguarding and managing our precious soils for the future.
