This article explores the considerations and workings of local-indigenous (mana whenua) autonomy in urban design, using the Te Ara Mua – Future Streets project as an example. We primarily focused on mana whenua perspectives and found that developing capacity is necessary for effective engagement and that co-design approaches have broader implications for indigenous sovereignty and health equity. More importantly, in settler-cities like Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland, community streetscape enhancement must include strategies for re-indigenising the landscape. Access
