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.
