This qualitative summer internship research aims to:
Explore key components of a child health consultation with te reo speaking tamariki and whānau in a primary health care setting. Specific objectives include:
• Identify the structure that doctors employ in a consultation with te reo speaking tamariki
• Explore te reo speaking tamariki and whānau experiences in a primary health care setting
• Investigate the value of te reo in a child health care setting
The purpose of this summer intern project is to source information (cultural and spatial) that describes the student’s relationship to their marae in preparation for learning how to use spatial information technology to create maps of their ancestral landscapes.
This project will develop skillsets of blending modern ICT with oral narratives (mōteatea, lore of the land, pūrākau). The student will join the Te Koronga: Indigenous Science Research Theme at the University of Otago.
