Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga/Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research
This research project seeks to identify horticultural land use opportunities in Māori-owned Wairoa, Te Tairawhiti rohe. The outcomes of this project are to monitor and assess current soil and water trends to determine the most suitable crops for preventing wind and water erosion. Methods include district scale spatial analysis (Reid et. al 2006) to determine the most suitable crops, of which are saffron, feijoa and gevuina.
This research seeks to determine the concepts of cultural richness through a Māori lens and within the principles of whanaungatanga, manaakitanga and aroha. Nankivell blends personal narrative and research to examine cultural richness and social capital and how these themes can be integrated into an urban setting.
This research seeks to examine the intergenerational impacts that Christianity— and particularly Mormonism—have had on the Māori at Aotea (Great Barrier Island) from the 19th century to the present. The research draws from oral interviews with whanau and pakeke and probes the disruption of traditional belief systems and subsequent assimilation of the Māori of Aotea
This summer internship project explores nga uri o matihiko –the Māori digital generation. Qualitative research and input from digital natives provides insight into the behaviours, thoughts and actions and how identity is informed by a digital culture.
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?
