Over the past four years NPM has hosted a number of First Nations interns from the University of Toronto, as part of the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships. This programme aims to mobilise a dynamic community of young global leaders to create lasting impacts both at home and abroad through inter-cultural exchanges.

In mid-April we welcomed Claire Zwicker (Chippewa) into NPM as one of our 2019 QEII Interns.

A group of independent Indigenous experts from the United Nations recently visited New Zealand to assist Government and Iwi in developing a strategy and plan for the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, via a series of hui held across the country.

The delegation comprised members of the UN Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (EMRIP) which provides States with expertise and advice on the rights of Indigenous peoples.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is seeking to develop new seed and scope research projects for 2019-2020 that align with our ongoing research themes and focus and contribute to our outcomes and vision.

The NPM-New Horizons for Womens Trust Hine Kahukura Research Award is a partnership between Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) and New Horizons for Women Trust (NHWT) and is for Wāhine Māori researchers.

This one off award of $10,000 aims to support research that benefits Māori women, girls and/or whānau in Aotearoa New Zealand and is made annually to assist in research and/or living expenses while conducting your research.
