E te purapura tuawhiti e Mānuka
Kua tuakoka te ao rangahau Māori
Ka ngākau titikaha hei mumu
Kia whakaora anō ai te ohaoha a te Māori
Nāu anō ngā kaupapa tuatinitini, kaupapa taioreore
O Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga i kōkiri i tohutohu ki ōna taumata angitū
Haere rā e te Ihumanea, tē wareware tō rahi tō ihi
Tēnei a Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga e whakamiha e whakamānawa
E Mānuka, our noted and esteemed leader
The Māori research world has become impoverished by your departure
Māori professors from across all 8 of Aotearoa New Zealand’s Universities, write a second letter to the government reissuing their call for an urgent national review of the tertiary sector for Te Tiriti o Waitangi compliance.
They are seeking to meet with the Minister of Education & Māori Crown Relations to ask for the government’s help and leadership in issuing a statement of expectations, conducting a Tiriti audit, and developing and financing an action plan to transform institutional leadership to meet the expectations of the Tertiary Education Strategy 2020.
NPM'S 2020-21 Summer Internship programme is about to start again with an outstanding group of aspiring emerging Māori researchers, working with our NPM Researchers all over the country and engaged in an exciting range of projects across our research themes.
With over 70 students applying for the coveted internships, our selection panel had an extremely difficult task in selecting the successful interns.
HUNDREDS LOG ON FOR THE 9TH BIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL INDIGENOUS RESEARCH CONFERENCE!
NPM Co-Director, Professor Jacinta Ruru gives a wrap-up of IIRC20
Last week, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga hosted one of the largest ever global online gatherings of Indigenous-led research. Our 9th International Indigenous Research Conference - but our first online - exceeded all expectations.
NPM recently celebrated the award of 7.5 years of Centre of Research Excellence funding from 2021 - 2028, and with the end of our current Centre funding looming (recently extended to 30 June 2021) changes in staff are a foot. We have departures from our leadership groups as well as the Auckland based secretariat.
The ongoing work of Indigenous scholars and researchers, including several of our Māori academics, in Indigenous data sovereignty is presented in a new edited open access book ‘Indigenous Data Sovereignty and Policy’.
NPM Co-Director Professor Jacinta Ruru, Associate Professor Angela Wanhalla and Jeanette Wikaira have released the Read our Words poster, profiling ten easily accessible Māori authored non-fiction books.
The poster encourages the public to engage with the voices and experiences of Māori to help create an anti-racist Aotearoa New Zealand.
In acknowledging the diverse Māori language activity and research, NPM and Te Mātāwai partnered to co-host an important te reo Māori symposium at the Otago Museum, Dunedin, on the 8th and 9th of October.
Recent NPM Board Member, University of Auckland Pro-Vice Chancellor (Māori) and former Children's Commissioner Professor Cynthia Kiro has been appointed Ahorangi - Chief Executive of the Royal Society Te Apārangi.
