Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's (NPM) 2016 Pūrongo Ā-Tau Annual Report was presented at NPM's Hui-ā-Tau (Annual General Meeting) in Wellington on May 25, 2017. This document highlights our performance and activities for the first year of our new Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) contract, engaging a renewed and collectivised network of 21 partners in an evolved NPM, with a distributed leadership and a new research leadership team.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) would like to announce the appointment of Associate Professor Leonie Pihama (Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Māhanga, Ngā Māhanga a Tairi) to its Board. Leonie has been selected to fill the position made available through Te Haumihiata Mason’s resignation in late 2016 and will join an experienced collective of seven Board members.  

NPM is seeking to appoint a new Co-Director, one with a strong record of research, teaching, graduate supervision and demonstrated research leadership. The position will work alongside Professor Jacinta Ruru (University of Otago) as Co-Director, succeeding Professor Tracey McIntosh who has recently been appointed Professor of Indigenous Studies and co-Head, Te Wānanga o Waipapa at the University of Auckland. NPM is hosted by and has its main offices based at the University of Auckland, on behalf of the 21 collaborative partners.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Tracey McIntosh on her new appointment to Professor of Indigenous Studies and Co-Head of Te Wānanga o Waipapa at the University of Auckland (to commence 1 July 2017).

Tracey has been influential in the success of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) over its 15 years, involved from the early days in leadership positions, initially on the NPM Research Committee, and then as a Joint Director (2007-2010), Director (mid 2014-2015) and most recently as Co-Director (2016-2017).

On 12 & 13 June 2017 NPM will once again be hosting an Auckland based Science Media Savvy - Media Skills for Māori Researchers workshop. This highly-acclaimed media and communications workshop is run by the Science Media Centre and follows on from two popular sessions we held in Auckland and Dunedin in 2016.
