Unique Māori Methodologies Part Three: Dr Mere Kēpa

Māori researchers have created exciting ways to approach and carry out research over the past 25 years. Early new research methods were underpinned by Māori cosmology and mātauranga, and these approaches are still in use today. However, Māori researchers continue to redefine methodological spaces, and the overarching concept of mātauranga Māori is often supported by methods specific to hapū knowledge. Within this framework, researchers have developed approaches to work appropriately and engage effectively with Māori communities.

People's Media Venezuela

Over the last decade, Indigenous peoples and new social movements have produced the most profound and democratic transformation in the history of Latin America - the southern part of what Indigenous peoples call Abya Yala (the Americas). Some describe this moment as potentially post-capitalist and others as decolonial, suggesting the ways these changes challenge colonialism. Indigenous leaders like Bolivian President Evo Morales are contributing new ideas to solving global crises such as access to water and climate change.

Lake Rotoitipaku - the Mauri Model

The Ngāti Tuwharetoa ki Kawerau iwi places great significance on Te Kete Poutama, an area that encompasses Lake Rotoitipaku near Kawerau, because it has been integral to their economic, cultural, spiritual and social wellbeing for generations. Tasman Pulp and Paper, now Norske Skog Tasman Ltd., leased the area for dumping waste in 1971 and it became the primary disposal site for solid paper-mill waste. Now Lake Rotoitipaku no longer exists – it’s filled with more than 600,000m3 of toxic material. In 2013 the dumping will stop and the land will return to its trustees.
