NPM recently acknowledged a decision of the High Court to overturn an application to mine iron sands from the South Taranaki seabed.
 
NPM researchers worked closely with one of the iwi opposed to this mining, Ngā Rauru, including as part of a NPM funded research project in 2014 Māori Engagement in New Zealand’s Extractive Industry: Innovative Legal Solutions. 

The NPM conference this year includes a new Indigenous Arts and Performance theme Ka Haka II, led by one of our research partners Auckland University of Technology (AUT).

AUT is our host venue for IIRC18  pre-conference workshops being held on Monday 12 November and features the Ka Haka II launch that evening which will be filled with a range of diverse and contemporary performances.

There will also be Ka Haka elements, presentations and lunchtime performances throughout the conference week.

The theme for this years 8th Biennial International Indigenous Research Conference (IIRC18) is “Indigenous Futures”, and in 2018 keynotes are being delivered by Dr Chelsea Bond (Munanjahli and South Sea Islander woman), Dr Marie Delorme (Métis, Canada), Professor Charles Menzies (First Nations, Canada, Member of Gitxaala Nation), 'Aulani Wilhelm (Hawaiian), Professor Poia Rewi (Tūhoe, Ngāti Manawa, Te Arawa) and Ka Haka II special guest keynote Maree Sheehan (Ngāti Maniapoto, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Waikato).

Nā reira, me whakaihuwaka tātou i a tātou anō, kia huakina mai te whatitoka o te whare o te reo Māori, kia whiua reretia ana ki tēnā tae ki tēnā awaawa ki tēnā moka ki tēnā kōtihitihi.
