In a new initiative, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence is celebrating and recognising the careers of three Māori leaders and visionaries, who have a long history of bringing about major social change and impact in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Professor Rawinia Higgins, NPM Board member, says that these new Ruānuku positions formally acknowledge the generous ongoing roles these exceptional Māori leaders have agreed to provide to NPM.

The University of Otago recently appointed seven of its leading scholars to prestigious new roles as sesquicentennial distinguished chairs, and one of these appointees was NPM's co-director Professor Jacinta Ruru.

On Thursday 12 September, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence (NPM) released its third Te Arotahi paper calling on government to pay even closer attention to the issues of whānau and whakapapa within the criminal justice system.  This paper advocates for the development of a new paradigm of transformative justice based on whānau development that values tino rangatiratanga and tikanga Māori.

Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia kōrero
Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia tika
Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia Māori

Nei rā te whakatau hei arataki nei i a tātou,
Hāunga rā mō te wiki, mō te Mahuru Māori rānei,
Heoti, mō āke tonu anō.

Whakatōkia te reo ki te hirikapo ihumanea,
Kia tīparehia te matenga
Hei huia kaimanawa māu,
Mā tō whānau, mā tō iwi anō hoki.
