On Wednesday 30th September Professor Rāwinia Higgins from Victoria University of Wellington, presented a professorial lecture on the current state of te reo Māori.

On Wednesday 26th August and in the sixth of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s (NPM) Horizons of Insight Seminars for 2015, Professor Helen Moewaka Barnes from Massey University, will present a professorial lecture on Māori and Research Advancement and Managing with the Minimum.

Helen has been a leading researcher in the Academy for many years now and contrary to what many might like to think, she holds the view that Māori and research advancement is not a trajectory where one development builds on another.

I puta ēnei kupu i te waha o Tā Hemi Hēnare ki Te Taraipiunara o Waitangi i te tau 1985. I whakapāhongia atu anō i runga i a ‘Waka Huia’ i te tau 1988.
- These words were uttered by Sir James Henare to the Waitangi Tribunal in 1985 and were broadcast on ‘Waka Huia’ in 1988.

Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Māori Ko te kupu te mauri o te reo Māori E rua ēnei wehenga kōrero e hāngai tonu ana ki runga i te reo Māori Ko te reo, nō te Atua mai.

In next weeks Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) - Horizons of Insight Seminar, Aneta Morgan (Te Arawa) will be presenting Taunakitia Te Marae: Marae as Centres of Excellence - a Te Arawa Perspective.
