Jointly published by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and Te Whare Kura, these proceedings bring together the refereed contributions to the Indigenising Knowledge for Current and Future Generations symposium (23–24 March 2012) convened by the Te Whare Kura: Indigenous Knowledges, Peoples and Identities Thematic Research Initiative.
The Traditional Knowledge Conference 2008 focused on traditional knowledge and gateways to balanced relationships. The conference title, Te Tatau Pounamu: The Greenstone Door, referred in a figurative sense to how, in times of trouble, peace could be secured and warfare ended through a political marriage and the exchange of greenstone. The peace thus established was often likened to a greenstone door as both were seen as being durable, strong and highly valuable.
This Proceedings contains 60 papers on the theme “Kei Muri i te Kāpara He Tangata Kē: Recognising, Engaging, Understanding Difference”. It is a unique collection of writing by indigenous researchers and those acutely interested in the knowledge and life worlds of indigenous peoples. The papers come from across all disciplines and move beyond identifying and understanding problems toward creative solutions that seek to meet the needs of present and future generations.
