A huge mihi to our members who provided valuable feedback that informed this report.  The report forms part of the Indigenous Matters Section report and should be included as a distinct indigenous perspective from Māori (indigenous people of New Zealand). From 9-12 May 2017, in Rotorua, New Zealand, over 50 Māori librarians gathered for their annual conference, as part of this event, each had the opportunity to participate in a conversation about how a united library field can tackle the challenges of the future.  The event was further followed up in June through to July to capture responses.  Together we represent 2,620 years of library experience.
