Changing worlds, changing tikanga - Educating history and the future
My previous post was a long one, and I intend to follow it up with a shorter, less journally summary. In the mean time, I want to let you know about this hui coming up (where coincidentally, I’ll be talking about sexuality). I’m really excited about the speakers they have lined up (listed below). Early, cheaper registrations are due in the next few weeks, and there’s a very limited number of free registrations for students. Check out their website for more information or to register (I’ve pasted some of the info below).

Te Horopaki – BackgroundThis year’s hui builds on the Kei Tua o Te Pae hui in 2011. It explored the challenges of kaupapa Māori thinking and action in the 21st century. In 2012 we want to progress Moana Jackson’s challenge to us to respect and recognise the diverse elements that make kaupapa Māori unique.
The 2012 hui will explore the impact that colonisation has had on tikanga Māori and challenge our thinking about tikanga Māori. As hosts we believe that tikanga is ever-changing. We will be bringing together a diverse Māori audience interested in thinking about how tikanga has been shaped by history, and what we take with us into the future. .
This two-day event is jointly hosted by Te Wāhanga, New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER), and Te Wānanga o Raukawa. Te Wānanga o Raukawa is a tikanga Māori centre of higher learning, dedicated to ensuring the survival, wellness and advancement of Māori as a people. Te Wāhanga is the kaupapa Māori unit at NZCER. It undertakes kaupapa Māori educational research that contributes to whānau wellbeing. .
