Nga Pae o te Maramatanga's Annual Research Symposium 2013

Fostering Te Pā Harakeke: Healthy and Prosperous Families of Mana: 25-26 November 2013, Trinity Wharf Tauranga. Registrations are now closed as the symposium is fully booked.

Families are the cornerstone of a healthy and functioning society, economy and culture. For historical and contemporary reasons, barriers to the health and wellbeing of Māori people and inhibiting their creative potential can be partially attributed to the situation in which some Māori families find themselves. Fostering Te Pā Harakeke is concerned with understanding what keeps a family well and prospering and the barriers that exist. Research under this theme is concerned with the relationship between education and Te Pā Harakeke; family violence, deprivation and poverty; and discovering the positive role te reo Māori and mātauranga Māori has in sustaining Te Pā Harakeke.

Registrations are closed as the Symposium is fully booked. 

Video recordings of speakers at previous research symposia are available from the Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Media Centre: 2012 Symposium | 2011 Symposium | 2010 Symposium | 2009 Symposium
