In February 2017 Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga hosted and engaged in deep discussion and relationship building at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland.
On Thursday 2 February and Friday 3 February NPM brought its researchers (Principal Investigators) together for a Research Wānanga focused not only on whakawhanaungatanga but also on fostering greater cohesiveness across and within our Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Māori, Whai Rawa, Te Tai Ao and Mauri Ora research programme strategy.
The annual Māori and Indigenous Doctoral Students' Conference (MAI Conference) was hosted by MAI ki Pōneke in 2016 and was held at Te Herenga Waka Marae and Victoria University of Wellington from Wednesday 23rd - Friday 25th November.
Over the years, many Māori doctoral students have acknowledged the contribution that MAI Te Kupenga, as a flagship Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) initiative, has made to their achievements. MAI Te Kupenga is dedicated to fostering bonds between Māori and Indigenous scholars across a wide range of disciplines and sectors, as well as across nations and oceans.
Hāpaitia te ara tika, pūmau ai te rangatiratanga mō ngā uri whakatipu
Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength, independence and growth for future generations
Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's 2015 Annual Report has been published and highlights a year when we delivered real outcomes for iwi, hapū and whānau and enjoyed consistent growth, as well as the increased engagement of our network and wider community.
A small collection of recent NPM project reports highlighting the quality and breadth of our research and researchers have been made available on our site. These three projects were completed in 2015 and look at: the challenges faced by Māori academics, how mātauranga Māori can inform farming practice and how the quality of te reo Māori can be enhanced for future generations.
New Zealand has seen a sharp increase in Extractive Industry (oil, gas and mining) projects in recent years, and the government has been strongly supportive of investment in this sector.
Some iwi and hapū have been engaged in high profile demonstrations against the industry ... but many Māori communities struggle to effectively engage with the industry, and in particular, point to inadequate consultation processes.
Four new Centres of Research Excellence (CoREs) have been selected by the Tertiary Education Commission at the end of the second round of CoREs funding.
Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment Minister Steven Joyce has commended successful applicants, the Bio-Protection Research Centre (Lincoln University), The Riddet Institute (Massey University), QuakeCore: Centre for Earthquake Resilience (University of Canterbury) and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (The University of Auckland.)
Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's (NPM) 2014 Annual Report highlights NPM's ongoing impact and research excellence over the past calendar year.
In 2014 we launched a series of new projects focused on Māori economic performance, published our research widely (four books, 15 book chapters, 122 journal articles and 24 research reports) and produced research outputs that directly influenced the day to day lives of local communities across the country.
Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) received confirmation from the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) in May 2015, that it has succeeded in obtaining the new Māori Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) Funding.
The announcement by the Minister, the Hon Steven Joyce, means that NPM’s future is now secure and it can continue to focus on forging new pathways of academic and research excellence for many more years to come.
The Honourable Dr Pita Sharples, Minister of Māori Affairs launched Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s new research initiative to discover the many diverse ways the Māori language adds value to society at Te Marae, Te Papa Tongarewa Museum in Wellington 8th of December.
