Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is a Centre of Research Excellence, which undertakes and invests in research concerning the needs and opportunities arising in Māori communities.

We are particularly interested in the creative potential of:

  • Resources, assets, organisations and institutions of Māori peoples
  • Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge)
  • Māori people.

Our research programme has specific themes and priorities, and we are critically aware of the importance of sharing research outcomes with appropriate audiences, user groups and stakeholders – Māori communities especially – so positive change can be achieved. We are keen to support emerging researchers in the field of indigenous development, and build capacity and capability through our research projects and programmes.
