Pātaka  - Our Maori Resource Management Tool

PATAKA LOGOYou can access the Pataka mapping tool here.

This tool uses digital mapping to show the location and extent of iwi and hapū resources in Hawke's Bay. Pātaka brings together all the information held by local and regional Councils, and gives tangata whenua a resource to assist their roles as this region’s kaitiaki.  It gives the public access to mapping tools and data without needing specialist Geographic Information System (GIS) skills, thanks to a viewer developed by Hawke’s Bay Local Authority Shared Services Ltd (HBLASS). Pātaka includes the location and contact information for each local marae, customary marine titles, protected customary rights and any iwi/hapū management plans that are available.
