- Paper Structure
The paper builds off SPEX 206 and is focused on five key wāhanga, or topics. These are: (1) tangata (people); (2) whenua (land); (3) waka (canoes); (4) wai (water); and (5) moana (ocean). In this paper we ask students to:
1. Deepen understanding of mātauranga (Māori knowledge) through the environment.
2. Examine theoretical content of the manifestations of Māori worldview through: (1) tangata (people); (2) whenua (land); (3) waka (canoes); wai (water): and moana (ocean).
3. Consider appropriate applications alongside Māori communities for the five key wāhanga topics.
