The modern Māori economy is a dynamic, deep-rooted, complex and ever evolving space.
Kaitiakitanga of natural resources, issues around intergenerational wealth, maintenance of cultural identity, and the wellbeing of iwi, hapū and whānau all play an important part in future strategic
development of tribal resources and business opportunities.
Education plays a seminal role in the transformation of life trajectories for all children but especially for those whose life experiences are constrained by poor socio-economic circumstances or social and cultural marginalisation.
The 2015 Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Horizons of Insight Seminar Series is beginning again. This year we will be focusing on some of our recent Māori economic performance research projects, as well as enjoying powerful presentations from some of the countries newest Māori Professors.

Soon after separating Ranginui and Papatūānuku, Tāne travelled into the heavens with the various celestial bodies, to suspend them in the sky bringing light unto the world. Within the basket ‘Te Mangoroa’ Tāne carried the stars, from which he drew forth the brightest and placed them against the chest of Ranginui. So enthralled was Tāne at what he had achieved that he accidently knocked the basket over scattering the remaining stars across the cosmos. As the stars spilled from the basket they clattered against one and other creating a ringing sound that resonated throughout the universe.

Starting in April 2016, thousands of people, led by Standing Rock Sioux Tribal members, gathered at camps to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), creating the #NoDAPL movement. The movement temporarily blocked pipeline construction, though the Trump administration in 2017 reversed this decision, permitting DAPL's construction. #NoDAPL has mobilised Indigenous peoples and allies everywhere through the philosophy of "Mni Wiconi" or "Water is Life."
On Wednesday 26th August and in the sixth of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s (NPM) Horizons of Insight Seminars for 2015, Professor Helen Moewaka Barnes, presented a professorial lecture on Māori and Research Advancement and Managing with the Minimum.
