INDV301 Māori and Indigenous Development: Governance and Ethics

Māori / Indigenous development focused on an indigenous knowledge framework that emphasises indigenous development planning, strategies and practices. A three-day Iwi / Community development practicum is a compulsory part of the paper.

This paper provides students with the opportunity to understand how the cultural, social, environmental and economic variables work towards effecting intergenerational development for Indigenous peoples. INDV 301 will not only provide in-class theory and models for indigenous development, but also take you beyond the classroom to participate in local community development projects. Students will get valuable first-hand experience that builds skills in communication, planning, identifying problems and finding solutions while working with Iwi and community groups. INDV 301 is about developing research, knowledge and development-practice skills through a student/Iwi-community interface.
