Māori Student Support

Kaiāwhina and Te Rōpū

Te Tari Mātai Kararehe (The Department of Zoology) has a kaiāwhina who provides support to Māori students.

Our current kaiāwhina is Associate Professor Mark Lokman (email). 

Our kaiāwhina is supported by Te Rōpū, a group of staff and postgraduate students who meet regularly to discuss how to improve our department's engagement with Te Ao Māori and the support that is available to Māori students. We organise events during Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, and facilitate meetings between students. If you have ideas for events or support that we can provide, please get in touch. The current membership of Te Rōpū is:

Staff: Travis Ingram (chair, email), Jo Monks, Stephanie Godfrey, Amandine Sabadel, Bart Geurten

Students: Tōrea Scott-Fyfe, Thor Elley, Manaia Pearmain-Fenton

Waiata

Our Department's waiata expresses our commitment to understanding and protecting the animals of Aotearoa New Zealand. For writing and teaching us the waiata, ngā mihi nui to Mariana Te Pou, Kaiārahi Pūtaiao, Division of Sciences.

Ngā hau e whā i huihui tātou
Tuarā te ora o ngā kararehe
O Papa, o Tāne, o Tangaroa

Manaakitia te ora o te taiao
Tuarā te ora o ngā kararehe
O Papa, o Tāne, o Tangaroa
O Papa, o Tāne, o Tangaroa

Tuarā te ora o ngā kararehe
