NPM'S 2020-21 Summer Internship programme is about to start again with an outstanding group of aspiring emerging Māori researchers, working with our NPM Researchers all over the country and engaged in an exciting range of projects across our research themes.

With over 70 students applying for the coveted internships, our selection panel had an extremely difficult task in selecting the successful interns.

HUNDREDS LOG ON FOR THE 9TH BIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL INDIGENOUS RESEARCH CONFERENCE!

NPM Co-Director, Professor Jacinta Ruru gives a wrap-up of IIRC20

 

Last week, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga hosted one of the largest ever global online gatherings of Indigenous-led research.  Our 9th International Indigenous Research Conference - but our first online - exceeded all expectations.  

The ongoing work of Indigenous scholars and researchers, including several of our Māori academics, in Indigenous data sovereignty is presented in a new edited open access book ‘Indigenous Data Sovereignty and Policy’.

NPM Co-Director Professor Jacinta Ruru, Associate Professor Angela Wanhalla and Jeanette Wikaira have released the Read our Words poster, profiling ten easily accessible Māori authored non-fiction books. 

The poster encourages the public to engage with the voices and experiences of Māori to help create an anti-racist Aotearoa New Zealand.

In acknowledging the diverse Māori language activity and research, NPM and Te Mātāwai partnered to co-host an important te reo Māori symposium at the Otago Museum, Dunedin, on the 8th and 9th of October.

Recent NPM Board Member, University of Auckland Pro-Vice Chancellor (Māori) and former Children's Commissioner Professor Cynthia Kiro has been appointed Ahorangi - Chief Executive of the Royal Society Te Apārangi.

Royal Society Te Apārangi recently convened a multidisciplinary panel  of leading experts to examine issues of equality, equity, and fairness in Aotearoa. The panel’s name, Te Tapeke, comes from the saying ‘ka tapeke katoa te iwi’ and conveys valuing and including all people.

Kia hiwa rā! kia hiwa rā!
Kia hiwa rā i tēnei tuku!
Kia hiwa rā i tērā tuku!
Kia tū, kia oho, kia mataara e!
Pū te koa i te whakapuakitanga e tūpapahū nei.
Ka whakamihatia, ka whakamānawatia ngā ihuoneone o te kaupapa.
Koutou katoa e whakapeto ngoi ana, e okea ururoatia kia ū ai ki tā
Ngā Pae matekitenga, whāinga, whakataukī anō hoki.
Nei anō a Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga e ngunguru nei, au, au, auē, hā!  Hī!!
 

Applications for NPM's Summer Internship Programme are open once again! 30 summer internship positions will be selected and confirmed from the 49 project proposals.

These are open for our tauira to apply, review the projects, then get your CV and application together and apply by 12 October!

In 2020 we are also including three special named inaugural internship awards. These scholarships honour three of our esteemed NPM scholars and their whānau.

Recent weeks have seen an increased focus on issues of inequality and racism in Aotearoa's educational system, particularly within its tertiary sector. NPM is sharing recent open letters regarding action called for by many Māori and Indigenous academic colleagues internationally.
