The spatial dimension of cultural identity
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.
