Note(s): 2020: Kāpunipuni Māori - Māori Knowledge Internship
Mā muri e kawea, Mā mua e taki - Engaging the past, to traverse the future

Overview: This course will provide you with an understanding of tikanga Māori within the context of Te Ūpoko o te Ika, the Wellington region. Throughout the course you will gain first-hand experience through a series of interactive cultural engagements. This will provide you with an enhanced understanding of the relationships of people and the environment, Māori philosophies, and Māori cultural situations. You will learn from knowledge experts within an inclusive and supportive environment.

Participating within a collective, you will form shared understandings in how to equip yourselves with some formative steps towards undertaking Māori cultural engagements. As an individual you may cultivate a stronger relationship with your identity, connections, and develop a sense of preparedness for social/cultural encounters relevant to, and informing your own creative practice, projects, whānau and communities.

You will be required to attend a weekly 1.5 hr class to develop some key practical skills. In addition to these classes, you will attend at least three events per semester where you will engage the skills and knowledge that you have acquired during weekly classes. On completion of this internship, you will attend a group wānanga where you will have the opportunity to share your learning experiences.

Enrolment is via special permission.
