Exploration of the constraints and opportunities associated with maintaining an indigenous identity from a cultural heritage/taonga (Māori ancestral treasures/resources) perspective within Aotearoa/New Zealand today.
This paper is a core paper of the Indigenous Development programme. Indigenous Development/He Kura Matanui focuses on the contemporary cultural, social, intellectual and economic development of Indigenous peoples in an international context. It is cross-disciplinary, combining Indigenous knowledge with a range of existing subjects. Graduates will develop a multi-disciplinary, culturally inflected understanding of contemporary Indigenous concepts and issues through cooperation, communication and respect for differences.
