Climate change is one of the most serious global health threats of the 21st century. Its impacts will be disproportionately borne by the most disadvantaged populations around the world, including Indigenous peoples who have long-term interests in the land that remains under their control after colonisation, and are heavily invested in primary industries.
Keynote speakers include outstanding USA speakers asha bandele (author & organiser), Patrisse Cullors (Black Lives Matter co-founder), and Deborah Small (Executive Director, Break the Chains). NPM is proud to support this event.
What current methods do Māori use to manage money? What financial products and services are likely to be effective for Māori and how might these be successfully implemented? What support can Māori organisations (including iwi) and the government provide to increase whānau financial literacy and savings?
Poverty within many Māori communities is perpetuated by low incomes, poor financial literacy and a lack of whānau role models who encourage saving. For change to occur, financial education, collaborative community efforts and radical behavioural shifts are required.
For the past 12 months Dr Jordan Te Aramoana Waiti (Ngāti Pikiao, Ngāti Maahanga, Te Rarawa) - University of Waikato, has been working on an exciting NPM scoping project - Wai-Tai, Wai-Rua: A Mātauranga Māori based Heke Ngaru Programme to Promote Mauri Ora.
The core of this project is focused around how a mātauranga Māori-based heke ngaru (surfing) programme is able to contribute to flourishing whānau.
