We can easily distil the unique aspects of an indigenous or Te Tiriti o Waitangi consistent framework, creating bespoke models and frameworks consistent with an indigenous world view, to support and enable Māori and indigenous communities to make informed decisions, including cultural or business decisions, in relation to their intangible assets, including mātauranga Māori.
