He āta mātai, he rangahau i te oranga o te waitai i tētahi rohe o te Tairāwhiti kia mōhiotia ai he wai ora rānei, he tai ora rānei, he mate rānei tēnei momo taiao. Hei reira anō ka whakamōhiotia atu ki ngā mana tiaki o taua rohe, ka whakariterite tikanga hoki hei tiaki i te tai. Ko te rohe e tohua ana ko te ākau o Tokomaru i te raki ki Whāngārā i te tonga. Ko te rohe tēnei o ngā karangatanga hapū o Ngāti Porou, o Te Aitanga a Hauiti, o Ngāti Konohi, o Ngāti Ira anō hoki.
This summer internship project will identify occasions where haka, waiata and other oral art forms were commonly used as a form of expression, the frequency in which these occasions occurred and the purpose of these expressions for each situation. Each of these occasions employed a particular style of oral art form.
The purpose of this internship project is to further the operationalising of Indigenous Data Sovereignty principles by identifying tikanga that could inform practical data governance mechanisms.
We will use kaupapa Māori as the theoretical framework to address the following research questions:
1. What concepts shape Māori views on the governance of data?
2. What customary practices could inform Māori approaches to the governance of data?

This summer internship project is in support of one of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's large te reo research projects, led through Te Ipukarea.
Te Reo o te Pā Harakeke seeks to understand the factors that contribute to successful intergenerational transmission of the Māori language in the home.
The interns join the research team and support the research in a number of ways with a focus on the research data collected at the first Te Reo o te Pā Harakeke wānanga (November 2017), and in preparation for the second wānanga.
