Poutuarongo Puna Maumahara

Bachelor of Information Management

Become a guardian and exponent of knowledge systems ensuring the survival of taonga tuku iho (inherited treasures) and repositories of knowledge by drawing on tikanga and kawa relevant to your iwi, hapū, marae or organisation.

This qualification aims to develop bilingual and bicultural managers of Māori information resources in organisations.  If you are a natural organiser and enjoy managing systems, make a career designing, implementing and managing information systems that are suitable for whakapapa based rōpū, Māori groups and organisations in general.  

Your journey will begin by learning to integrate kaupapa Māori into the management of Māori knowledge as well as looking at how to maintain rangatiratanga in a global information environment. Develop concepts and practices for the long term survival and management of physical and digital resources, including best practice methods for reporting, database administration, file management, storage and retrieval.

Over the course of this three year degree you will further develop a sound knowledge of the concept of Māori autonomy in relation to intellectual and cultural property rights. Your kete will be filled with the tools required to apply preservation techniques and strategies pertaining to the care of taonga. For anyone already working or caring for taonga in a museum, library, archive, or within your own hapū, this qualification will complement your existing work from a kaupapa Māori perspective.  

The Heke Puna Maumahara is a one year introductory course into the foundations of mātauranga Māori and information management.  You will also conduct a study on your marae and build te reo Māori skills, including mihimihi, waiata and karakia.
