Heke Mātauranga Māori

Diploma in Mātauranga Māori

Studies in Mātauranga Māori will introduce you to understandings of human behaviour based on concepts handed down through generations of Māori. Te whakamāramatanga o ngā tikanga tuku iho e puta ai te titiro a te Māori ki tōna ao.  Learn about 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.

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.

If you are a descendent of the Confederation of Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Raukawa and Ngāti Toa Rangatira, you have the option of studying the Heke Awa, Raukawa, Toarangatira-tanga (HART).

The Heke programme is the first year of the three year Poutuarongo Mātauranga Māori degree.
