This is a Pūkōrero/Seminar that is hosted in Te Koronga Indigenous Science Research Theme.
The overarching goal is to build a strong indigenous research platform at Otago.
The research direction is indigenous science and includes: science derived from Māori ways of knowing as an example of indigenous science; interface research; and science that embodies a decolonising research ethic. The mission of the theme is to advance Māori economic and cultural aspirations, to show a way forward for indigenous collaborations on an international stage, and to engage a diverse campus community with mātauranga Māori.
Our speakers in March will be the Te Koronga Summer Interns:
- Inano Walter “The Preservation of Archives in the Pacific Islands”
- Rawiri Ratahi “Māori Mental Health and Pūrākau”
- Royal Hepi “Identity and Wellbeing”
- Jack Nelson “Exploring Wellbeing for Māori who have grown up by Whangai”
- Caleb Wilson “Māori Mental Health”
Following their talks we will share in kai (food) together.
