Kaupapa Māori research

Decolonisation, Research and Indigenous Peoples Today Hui

Universities can be a difficult location for Indigenous researchers who face a system that honours print more than oral traditions and rewards those who play it safe more than those who are honest in speaking the truth to power. Over time, Indigenous research can become more institutionalised and less connected to the communities who should benefit from this research, especially when colonialist narratives are replaced with others that are left unchallenged.

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.
