Upcoming events

Hui Poutama 2021

Tēnā koutou,

The Hui Poutama organising committee, along with Te Poutama Māori and Te Koronga have decided to cancel the 2021 Hui Poutama.

We had planned to reschedule the kaupapa to December for an online event. However, we recognise the huge amount of Zoom fatigue and online kaupapa fatigue that people have at the moment, whilst of course still being in the context of a global pandemic!

Thank you to our proposed guest speakers, everyone who has submitted abstracts and those who have contributed to organising the kaupapa.

We will make an announcement in the New Year for 2022.

Nā mātou,
Anne-Marie Jackson
Chair, Te Komiti Whakahaere

Hui Poutama is the biennial Māori academic staff symposium at Te Whare Wānanga o Ōtākou.

In 2021, for the first time, Hui Poutama will be a collaborative symposium co-hosted by Te Poutama Māori and Te Koronga, bringing together all Māori staff and Māori postgraduate students.

There will also be a conference dinner followed by an evening of entertainment.
