GNS Science advised how to use Maori knowledge

8:21 am on 3 July 2009

Maori have been meeting GNS Science to advise how the Crown research industry can use Maori knowledge in its work.

Advisory group member Emma Gibbs from Ngapuhi says matauranga Maori can offer fresh perspectives on the CRI's work in geology and natural sciences.

She told Waatea News that scientists sometimes need to be reminded to protect Papatuanuku or the earth, rather than abusing her.
