The modern Māori economy is a dynamic, deep-rooted, complex and ever evolving space.

Kaitiakitanga of natural resources, issues around intergenerational wealth, maintenance of cultural identity, and the wellbeing of iwi, hapū and whānau all play an important part in future strategic
development of tribal resources and business opportunities. 

Donna DeGennaro, Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Massachusetts and founder of the non-profit Unlocking Silent Histories (USH) has recently been confirmed as a keynote speaker at this years NPM International Indigenous Research Conference.

Donna joins Professor Sir Mason Durie, Justice Joe Williams and Professor Kyle Powys Whyte ( Michigan State University) as one of a number of internationally recognised presenters at our November conference. 

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s (NPM) new Board for its Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) contract through the Tertiary Education Commission, held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, March 23rd to formally establish itself, and will now oversee NPM going forward and assist in achieving our vision of “Māori Leading New Zealand into the Future’.
 

Our congratulations go to Dr Kepa Morgan, NPM Principal Investigator from the University of Auckland who has been awarded the prestigious Furket Award from IPENZ (Engineers NZ) for technical excellence and innovation in the engineering field of sustainability and clean technology.
