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.  

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.
