2018 Hui-ā-Tau - Ōtautahi
NPM's Pūrongo Ā-Tau Annual Report was presented at NPM's May 2018 Board Meeting and Hui-ā-Tau (Annual General Meeting) in Otautahi - Christchurch at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha - University of Canterbury last week.
Over two days our Board and collectivised network of 21 partners gathered together with the NPM Research Leadership Team, Principal Investigators and MAI coordinators to discuss our ongoing work, review the past 12 months, and continue our plans for the future.
It was agreed that our projects continue to be led by outstanding Māori researchers from across the country and that through these projects we are engaging with, and building an ever widening network both nationally and internationally.
Over 350 outputs were produced and delivered from NPM research and researchers in 2017, and we expect further increases in 2018, from new research articles, books and book chapters, to research reports and media, papers and presentations and of course conference presentations - which will culminate in NPM's 8th Biennial International Indigenous Research Conference in November this year.
The Hui-ā-Tau reaffirmed the successes of our ongoing national partnerships and collaborations and as we continue to expand our horizons, we are looking forward to many more new and exciting initiatives over the years ahead.
Board Chair Sir Tipene O'Regan and Co-Directors Professors Nikora and Ruru extend their gratitude to our host, NPM partner University of Canterbury, and to all those who travelled to be with us to share the many highlights of 2017.
