The NPM Foundational Project; Promoting Effective Māori Leadership and Decision Making for Prosperous Economies of Wellbeing – Te Whakatairanga i te Ārahitanga Whai Hua me te Māori te Whakatau Kaupapa is turning a microscope on Māori leadership and decision-making as it plays out in modern Aotearoa.

Decisions made on the marae, and within iwi corporations and Māori-run businesses affect who gets to enjoy the fruits of the burgeoning Māori economy, which is now worth more than $40 billion.

Te Mana Raraunga - the Māori Data Sovereignty Network advocates for Māori rights and interests in data to be protected as the world moves into an increasingly open data environment.

Māori Data Sovereignty recognises that Māori data should be subject to Māori governance and supports tribal sovereignty and the realisation of Māori and Iwi aspirations.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's (NPM) 2016 Pūrongo Ā-Tau Annual Report was presented at NPM's Hui-ā-Tau (Annual General Meeting) in Wellington on May 25, 2017. This document highlights our performance and activities for the first year of our new Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) contract, engaging a renewed and collectivised network of 21 partners in an evolved NPM, with a distributed leadership and a new research leadership team.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) would like to announce the appointment of Associate Professor Leonie Pihama (Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Māhanga, Ngā Māhanga a Tairi) to its Board. Leonie has been selected to fill the position made available through Te Haumihiata Mason’s resignation in late 2016 and will join an experienced collective of seven Board members.  

NPM is seeking to appoint a new Co-Director, one with a strong record of research, teaching, graduate supervision and demonstrated research leadership. The position will work alongside Professor Jacinta Ruru (University of Otago) as Co-Director, succeeding Professor Tracey McIntosh who has recently been appointed Professor of Indigenous Studies and co-Head, Te Wānanga o Waipapa at the University of Auckland. NPM is hosted by and has its main offices based at the University of Auckland, on behalf of the 21 collaborative partners.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Tracey McIntosh on her new appointment to Professor of Indigenous Studies and Co-Head of Te Wānanga o Waipapa at the University of Auckland (to commence 1 July 2017).

Tracey has been influential in the success of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) over its 15 years, involved from the early days in leadership positions, initially on the NPM Research Committee, and then as a Joint Director (2007-2010), Director (mid 2014-2015) and most recently as Co-Director (2016-2017).

On 12 & 13 June 2017 NPM will once again be hosting an Auckland based Science Media Savvy - Media Skills for Māori Researchers workshop. This highly-acclaimed media and communications workshop is run by the Science Media Centre and follows on from two popular sessions we held in Auckland and Dunedin in 2016.

Nei te hūpē te roimata e ringihia nei
Mō tēnei māreikura kua ngaro ki te pō
Ngarungaru Te Moana Nui A Kiwa
Tuohu mokemoke ai ngā motu katoa
E te mātanga a te kupu, E te ngākau nui tonu
Waiho mā āu pia pono tō ōhākī e hiki
Mahue mai mātou i te pūkatokato
E te Raukura haere, haere, haere atu rā
