Nei te hūpē te roimata e ringihia nei
Mō tēnei māreikura kua ngaro ki te pō
Ngarungaru Te Moana Nui A Kiwa
Tuohu mokemoke ai ngā motu katoa
E te mātanga a te kupu, E te ngākau nui tonu
Waiho mā āu pia pono tō ōhākī e hiki
Mahue mai mātou i te pūkatokato
E te Raukura haere, haere, haere atu rā
 

We are very proud of our scholars and students that have travelled and studied abroad through our successful partnership with Fulbright NZ.  This continues in 2017 with two awards, the Fulbright-NPM Graduate and the Fulbright-NPM Scholar Awards.

Over recent weeks Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga has hosted and engaged in deep discussion and relationship building at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland.

On Thursday 2 February and Friday 3 February NPM brought its researchers (Principal Investigators) together for a Research Wānanga focused not only on whakawhanaungatanga but also on fostering greater cohesiveness across and within our Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Māori, Whai Rawa, Te Tai Ao and Mauri Ora research programme strategy.

2017 has begun and NPM is already busy with a host of opportunities emerging for our network, as well as new research, new challenges and exciting new prospects as the year ahead unfolds.

Te Pūwānanga’s Raumati (Summer) Issue includes stories and images from the recent NPM Conference, the announcement of the dates to our 8th Biennial Conference in 2018, an outline of the intentions behind our National Māori Research Strategy, links to our recently published Strategic Direction document, NPM’s summer interns who have already begun their summer projects, and other stories and announcements on the work and activities of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.

Ko te haukai a te kairangahau Māori ko te reo Māori
Tāia, whakapuakina, whakatōkia kia puawai

The Māori language is the food of Māori researchers
Let it be written, spoken and implanted so that it will grow.

Applications have been called for the new ‘Tohu Puiaki - Doctoral Completion Scholarships’ which will offer up to $20,000 each to six people completing doctorates either in English on Māori Language Revitalisation, or who are writing their thesis in Te Reo Māori on any subject.

Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toiroa
Let us keep close together not far apart

We have reached the end of what has been an exciting, successful and busy year here at Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) - New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence.

There were six national and international keynote presenters at the 2016 NPM 7th Biennial International Indigenous Research Conference and the videos of these presentations are published on NPM's Media Centre.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's Strategic Direction document outlines NPM's direction through to 2020.

Ko te Māori e arataki ana i a Aotearoa ki te ao kei mua

Our Matakitenga or Vision translates to 'Māori Leading New Zealand into the future' and our research realises Māori aspirations for positive engagement in national life and the future of the country.
