Indigenous peoples deserve and require the best
possible, and most timely, information about their
homes and their lands.
One way to help meet these needs is to
develop a new, world class, culturally
appropriate, and secure information
platform designed expressly in collaboration with, by, and for Indigenous
peoples and their organizations.
When fully implemented, this powerful
capability will both empower guardians
and their allies and enable collaboration on real time guardianship activity,
which then assists Indigenous leaders
as they inform policy making.
Since the end of 2019, Nia Tero has
been working with Conservation
Metrics, Terras App, the Center for
Biodiversity Conservation at the
American Museum of Natural History,
and Tui Shortland—a Māori expert on
biocultural metrics—on the development of a mission-aligned monitoring
system for our place-anchored
partnerships. This system follows an
approach that begins with connecting
cultural perspectives to place-based
values, knowledge, relationships, and
needs; and recognizes mutual interdependence between ecological states
and human wellbeing.
