Māori researchers from across the country have been making considerable contributions to current national discussions around the response to Covid-19 and what the future holds. Just a few of these contributions are as follows:
In our most recent Te Arotahi Paper (link to paper here), NPM researchers are calling for our policy-makers to recognise and respect Māori concepts of wealth in advancing Māori financial literacy, in the face of the additional challenges now in front of our communities in this fast changing world.
As part of our Tautoko Strategy, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is committed to ensuring that our researchers have a platform for communicating their expertise and insights into Covid-19 and the wider implications it may have on whānau and Indigenous communities.
NPM has been publishing multiple video logs from our network of researchers, as they share with and support our communities with important messages for the conditions and impact of the Covid-19 era we find ourselves in. Our primary goal is to bring Indigenous knowledge, science, evidence and resources to the task of supporting advisors, decision-makers, iwi, our communities and whānau.
