In October 2007, the Government conducted 12 consultation hui with key tangata whenua throughout Aotearoa, on the Emissions Trading Scheme. This report outlines some key themes and notable points that have arisen from the questions, comments, challenges and ideas. The words of the hui participants themselves express important points, within a framework of a Māori worldview which is based on a spiritual connection to this earth, and within the Treaty of Waitangi.
