Ka kawe nga kī i te Tonga
To carry the knowledge from the South
Nau mai, haere mai ki tēnei wānanga ipurangi hosted by te rōpū rangahau, the Vision Mātauranga team of Ross Sea Region Research and Monitoring Plan.
This research aims to engage Māori hapū and iwi in a kōrero about their history of connection to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean and their aspirations for voice and representation in New Zealand’s Antarctic science, policy and governance in the future.
While it is still a bit uncertain to plan and set up meetings kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face) due to COVID, we hope that this website creates a space for meaningful engagement for Māori hapū and iwi, organisations, and representative bodies.
The website includes a short film Te Whakairo and an accompanying booklet that introduces the kaupapa. We also have an online seminar series where Māori researchers discuss different aspects of their Antarctic work.
In September 2020 we held online wānanga so that we could create space for meaningful kōrero with communities. We collected opinions through the online survey and we reported back on the outcomes of the research.
All the information you need is included or linked from this website.
Nau mai, haere mai anō and thank you for engaging in this kaupapa.
Tihei mauri ora!
