What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

This paper is a study of Māori histories, principles, beliefs, kinship and social structures encapsulated within customs and practices that have evolved from traditional times to the present.

The paper is built around a number of central themes that are of critical importance to Māori. As we explore each topic you will be challenged to extend your understanding of the Māori world, debating what it was, what it is and what it may become. I ask that you bring three things to this paper

1: A willingness to learn

2: A positive work ethic

3: Respect for others in this paper

Ko te mātauranga he puna e kore e mimiti - Knowledge is limitless

Edit How this paper will be taught Content

This is an A Trimester paper.

There are four contact hours per week consisting of one 2 hour lecture, and one 1 hour lecture and a one-hour tutorial at various times during the week. You are expected to attend both lectures and one tutorial. Outside of these hours, you can contact me via email ivan.kana@waikato.ac.nz. Guest lecturers will also be invited to share their expertise in particular subject areas.

The paper will be delivered in three ways:

  1. through a series of lectures and guest lectures introducing the main themes and ideas associated with the Māori world;
  2. through tutorials that will enable you to explore these themes in a group setting drawing on your own observations, experiences and readings;
  3. through online resources via Moodle.
