Taonga Tūturu Protocols are relationship agreements issued by Chief Executive of Manatū Taonga (the Ministry for Culture and Heritage) on behalf of the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage (on behalf of the Crown). The Ministry also offers relationship agreements in the form of whakaaetanga tiaki taonga. The whakaaetanga is a collective agreement to between culture and heritage agencies and iwi to support their cultural and heritage aspirations.
Protocols and whakaaetanga are offered to iwi primarily as Treaty settlement redress. Deeds of Settlement record that the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage will issue a protocol setting out how the Chief Executive of Manatū Taonga (the Ministry for Culture and Heritage) will interact with an iwi (through their post-settlement governance entity) on matters specified in the Protocol.
These agreements typically cover :
- Administration of the Protected Objects Act;
- Iwi engagement in policy and legislation reviews;
- Board appointments notification and nominations process;
- Registration of iwi as expert examiners and collectors of taonga tūturu;
- Provision of cultural practices and professional services by iwi;
- Administration of national monuments, war graves and historical graves in the iwi’s rohe;
- History publications;
- Terms of Issue and the protocol area.
