Providing informed and expert Māori researched evidenced insights is central to the work of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM), and this week NPM has launched a new series of think piece papers to provide research and focus to critical topic areas and issues facing Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Board hosted its 2019 Hui-ā-Tau AGM at the Royal Society Te Apārangi in Wellington on Thursday 23 May.  

It was a powerful day of celebrating our 2018 highlights together with our 21 partner representatives, Principal Investigators and Research Leadership Team.

NPM Board Chair, Kerensa Johnston, led the hui encouraging reflective discussion on what NPM might look like in 10 years’ time and what we need to do to get there.  

NPM's partnership with Fulbright New Zealand continues in 2019 with our well established and popular Graduate and Scholar awards.

Kei te taumata okiokinga e Te Wharehuia
Nā tō wehenga kua pōwhara te ao Māori
Hoake nā ki te paenga purapura tuawhiti
He ihuoneone mō te reo me ōna tikanga
Kua ea ai tō rahi, tō ihi tē taea te wareware
Nā tō Hinenuitepō porokī, kua riro
Nā reira, takoto pū ki tona korowai manaaki
