TK Mā Te Hapori Anake (TK MTHA)

He aha tēnei Tohu TK e whakamahia ai e koe?

Me whakamahi tēnei tohu hei whakamōhio atu i te hunga whakamahi nō waho kē, kua herea tēnei rawa ki ētahi tikanga tuari, arā, kāore i whakamahia ki tua atu i te whānau, te iwi, te hapori rānei. Nā te korenga o ēnei here i āta mārama i mua, ka mārama ake ināianei i roto i tēnei tohu ki te hunga whakamahi, haere ake nei. Ko tāna, he āki i ngā kaiwhakamahi kia tika te tiaki, kia whai i ngā tikanga ahurea, kia aroha hoki ngā whakaaro ki tō whakamahi i tēnei taonga.

TK He Kupu Tauira

Whakamahia ai tēnei tohu hei whakaatu ake, kāore tēnei rawa i whakamahia whānuitia e te hapori nui tonu i tua whakarere. He tohu whakatika pōhēhē tēnei mō te tuaritanga o tēnei rawa, arā, he whakamārama ki te hunga whakamahi, tērā ētahi tikanga motuhake tuari mō tēnei rawa ki roto i te hapori. Ehara i te mea he utu kore tēnei rawa, mā te hapori nui tonu rānei i tua whakarere, tae noa mai ki tēnei wā. Ko tā tēnei tohu, he wero i te hinengaro, ka pēhea tō whakamahi i te rawa nei, me tō whai whakaaro ki ngā tikanga, ki ngā uaratanga mō te tuari ki tangata kē, ki te whakamahi hoki.


Questions?

The TK Labels offer an educative and informational strategy to help non-community users of this cultural heritage understand its significance to the communities from where it derives and continues to have meaning. TK Labels identify cultural material that has community-specific conditions regarding access and use. The TK Labels promote new standards of respect by embedding Indigenous rules and protocols within digital systems. 

HOW CAN THE LOCAL CONTEXTS TOOLS BENEFIT OUR COMMUNITY ?

All the Local Contexts tools work together to support the proper recognition of Indigenous rights and interests in traditional knowledge and biocultural data. Each Local Contexts tool requires collaboration between communities and institutions and/or communities and researchers. The TK Labels communicate ongoing Indigenous relationships, obligations and responsibilities to information and data as well as expectations for its future circulation. Their implementation encourages researchers and institutions to adopt new practices.

How long does it take to develop TK Labels?

The community customization of the TK Labels is a collaborative process. How long it takes will depend on the scope of the project and how many TK Labels you’d like to develop. The Local Contexts Hub facilitates the process and allows for community vetting and authorizations.  

DO I NEED PERMISSION TO USE THE TK LABELS?

Using the TK Labels does not require permission. You will need to register on the Local Contexts Hub to customize the TK Labels and deliver them to institutional contexts or data repositories.  Reach out to the Local Contexts team to get the process started.

CAN THE TK AND BC LABELS BE USED TOGETHER?

Yes. The TK and BC Labels were designed to be used separately and/or together.
