Changing worlds, changing tikanga - Educating history and the future

'Whaowhia te kete mātauranga'
Nau mai haere mai ki tēnei hui ki te tirotiro, ki te whāwhā i ngā tikanga!


Te Wāhanga manager Jessica Hutchings and researcher Alex Barnes discuss the purpose of the second Kei Tua o Te Pae hui, held on 4-5 September.

Jessica Hutchings says some challenging issues will be raised at the hui. Here, she and Alex Barnes discuss what they hope hui attendees will get out of the two-day event.

Te Horopaki – Background

This year’s hui builds on the Kei Tua o Te Pae hui in 2011. It explored the challenges of kaupapa Māori thinking and action in the 21st century. You can download the 2011 proceedings by clicking here.  In 2012 we want to progress Moana Jackson’s challenge to us to respect and recognise the diverse elements that make kaupapa Māori unique.

The 2012 hui will explore the impact that colonisation has had on tikanga Māori and challenge our thinking about tikanga Māori. As hosts we believe that tikanga is ever-changing. We will be bringing together a diverse Māori audience interested in thinking about how tikanga has been shaped by history, and what we take with us into the future.

This two-day event is jointly hosted by Te Wāhanga, New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER), and Te Wānanga o Raukawa. Te Wānanga o Raukawa is a tikanga Māori centre of higher learning, dedicated to ensuring the survival, wellness and advancement of Māori as a people. Te Wāhanga is the kaupapa Māori unit at NZCER. It undertakes kaupapa Māori educational research that contributes to whānau wellbeing.

Hui co-conveners: Ani Mikaere (Te Wānanga o Raukawa), Jessica Hutchings (Te Wāhanga).

We are pleased to have the sponsorship of Ako Aotearoa for this hui.
