Poutuarongo Mātauranga Māori

Bachelor of Mātauranga Māori

 Te whakamāramatanga o ngā tikanga tuku iho e puta ai te titiro a te Māori ki tōna ao.  Learn kaupapa and tikanga Māori that define the way we view the world as Māori. Explore Māori knowledge as our tūpuna understood it, as we understand it today and as it will be applied tomorrow.  For anyone aspiring to work with or for a Māori organisation and in kaupapa Māori environments, this qualification is a must.

Over the course of this three year degree you will expand on and incorporate extensive studies in kaitiakitanga, tohungatanga, roles on the marae, paepae and science and technology in a mātauranga Māori context. Examine ngā tikanga tuku iho (our inherited treasures) including the creation of Māori art forms, karakia and associated pūrākau. Identify and explore the characteristics of atua Māori, look at concepts such as iwi, hapū and whānau, iwi oral tradition and gain a sound knowledge of marae protocol and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.  

Te reo, iwi and hapū studies are an intrinsic part of each year of the degree. As a graduate you will be able to offer advice on aspects of tikanga Māori and its role and relevance in today’s world in a wide range of professional, personal, whānau, iwi and hapū settings.

The Heke Mātauranga Māori examines ngā tikanga tuku iho, Māori art and design concepts, iwi oral traditions and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. You will undertake research about your marae and develop your te reo Māori skills, including mihimihi, waiata and karakia.

Years two and three of the Poutuarongo Mātauranga Māori expand further on ngā taonga tuku iho and incorporate more indepth studies in kaitiakitanga, tohungatanga, roles on the marae, paepae and science and technology in the mātauranga Māori context.
