On the 3-4 September, at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland, NPM will once again be hosting a Media SAVVY - Media Skills Workshop for Māori researchers

This fully-funded media and communication skills workshop is offered in a partnership between Ngā o te Māramatanga and the Science Media Centre, and supported by Curious Minds – He Hihiri i te Mahara.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga recently co-hosted 'Toi Tū Te Whānau, Toi Tū Te Kāwai Whakapapa: A workshop on whānau and whakapapa for public policy' in Wellington on 29 May 2018.

Videos of the presentations made on the day are available here on NPM's Media Centre.

Te Takarangi our online celebration of 150 Māori Publications recently reached 100 books with the profiling of Indigenous Data Sovereignty: Toward an Agenda.

This 100th entry celebrates and acknowledges the ground-breaking work of Professor Tahu Kukutai (Waikato, Ngāti Maniapoto, Te Aupouri) and John Taylor and is the first book to focus on this new and emerging field.

Continuing a proud tradition of investing in and supporting Māori graduate scholarship to create new dynamic international opportunities, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is pleased to announce its most recent award recipients, in partnership with Fulbright New Zealand. 
 
The Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Graduate Award is granted to promising New Zealand graduate students, in order for them to undertake one year of postgraduate study or research at a US institution in the field of Indigenous development.
 

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is once again developing new seed and scope research projects that contribute to our research themes:

- Whai Rawa
- Te Tai Ao
- Mauri ora
- Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga Māori

We are looking to develop and commence projects that contribute to our outcomes and vision, by providing a small contestable fund through our network that will initiate excellent research that has transformative potential.

On the 28th June Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and the Royal Society Te Apārangi acknowledged the passing of the halfway mark of Te Takarangi - our celebration of 150 Māori publications.

The 75th book recognised was Māori Made Easy: For Everday Learners of the Māori Language by NPM Board Member, Associate Professor Scotty Morrison.

In the wake of the recent passing of distinguished Māori language scholar Professor John Moorfield, this book highlights the work of the next generation to support te reo Māori revitalisation.

Superu and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga co-hosted 'Toi Tū Te Whānau, Toi Tū Te Kāwai Whakapapa: A workshop on whānau and whakapapa for public policy' in Wellington on 29 May 2018.

NPM Researcher Associate Professor Melinda Webber from the University of Auckland was elected a general councillor onto the Royal Society Te Apārangi Council in late May.

Melinda is a former Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Scholar who has published widely on the nature of Māori identity. Her research examines the ways race, ethnicity, culture and identity impact the lives of young people, particularly Māori students.

NPM's Pūrongo Ā-Tau Annual Report was presented at NPM's May 2018 Board Meeting and Hui-ā-Tau (Annual General Meeting) in Otautahi - Christchurch at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha - University of Canterbury last week.

Over two days our Board and collectivised network of 21 partners gathered together with the NPM Research Leadership Team, Principal Investigators and MAI coordinators to discuss our ongoing work, review the past 12 months, and continue our plans for the future.
