Pioneering Māori Education

Te Wānanga o Raukawa was established in 1981 as the first contemporary wananga of Aotearoa, pioneering the application of kaupapa, tikanga, kawa to the advancement of Māori within a contemporary education context. 


Over 30 years later and still driven by visionary leadership, Te Wānanga o Raukawa remains committed to being a centre of innovation and higher learning that contributes to the survival and wellbeing of Māori.



While other providers focus on educating Māori through primarily mainstream structures, we are unwaivering in our intention to pioneer the development and delivery of Māori education in a uniquely, and traditionally, Māori way.


With a growing list of field-leading alumni and staff, Te Wānanga o Raukawa has continued to develop a strong academic environment that is authentically Maori.


Be part of that pioneering heritage and achieve your own goals at Te Wānanga o Raukawa.
