The achievements of Māori researchers, scholars and innovators were celebrated on Wednesday 17 October at the Research Honours Aotearoa event, hosted by Royal Society Te Apārangi  at Te Papa, in Wellington, many with strong links and ties to Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.

Founding Joint Director of NPM Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith (Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Porou) received the inaugural Te Puāwaitanga Award from Royal Society Te Apārangi in recognition of the eminent and distinctive contribution she has made to Te Ao Māori, and to Māori and Indigenous knowledge.

More than 300 scholars, authors, research and community leaders, publishers, secondary school students and politicians came together in Parliament this past week to celebrate the success and future of Te Takarangi - 150 Māori authored non-fiction books.

MC for the evening NPM Board Member and Associate Professor Scotty Morrison led a series of speakers to commend the collection.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Co-Directors Professor Jacinta Ruru and Professor Linda Waimarie Nikora are thrilled to welcome Dr Hinekura Smith into a new position in our Research Leadership Team.
 
Dr Hinekura Smith (Te Rarawa, Ngāpuhi, Te Ati Awa) has commenced as our Emerging Researchers’ Leader to provide further national leadership and coordination of MAI Te Kupenga and develop and nurture initiatives that contribute to the outcomes and objectives of NPM’s Capability and Capacity Strategy.
