Whanganui never refers to our human role in upholding our connection with our natural environment as a kaitiaki role.
To us, our kaitiaki are the mouri or spiritual guardians with whom we are innately interconnected. Hence our role as humans is termed tangata tiaki (tangata: people, tiaki: to protect or care).
