|10.00am||Virtualising the Stories of Ngākau Māhaki
This presentation shares a recent research project that investigated how mātauranga Māori, recorded histories and events associated with Unitec’s Te Noho Kotahitanga marae can be shared within a digital space. The challenge was to model a digital repository that could meet the needs of Unitec’s diverse and changing learning community, while upholding the rangatiratanga of Māori partners. Key questions explored were: what are the implications for storing taonga and mātauranga Māori within digital spaces; and how might Māori processes of engagement with and on marae be transposed to a digital space? Kaupapa Māori approaches framed the research methodology and because of this, Māori knowledge and interests in the design of the prototype website ‘Te Rua’ were privileged. The Māori research partners’ recommendations were supported by research into current digital media platforms and tools associated with indigenous content and cultural heritage projects. The iterative and collaborative research approach concluded that taonga and mātauranga Māori can be successfully transposed to digital spaces. The ‘Te Rua’ website will thus be presented as a virtual learning environment in which rangatiratanga has been a design focus aimed at ensuring student access and engagement with taonga aligns with tikanga Māori.

|10am||Whangaia te Rito – Kohanga reo reading programme
Whangaia te Rito was first launched in 2003, under Manukau Libraries (pre-amalgamation). The director/curator of the programme was CLM Jennifer Barnett, in partnership with the late Mori Herewini, kaiako of Manurewa kohanga reo. In this presentation, I will discuss my experiences in delivering the programme, along with various obstacles and positive outcomes.
The aim of this presentation is to provide an insight into the implementation of a programme such as Whangaia te Rito – it is unique, and no other programme quite like it has been executed anywhere in Aotearoa.
Wāhine: Beyond the dusky maiden (title tbc)
Ariana Tikao, who co-curated the ‘Wāhine: Beyond the dusky maiden’ exhibition in the Turnbull Gallery last year, will talk about the dynamic community that formed around the exhibition which celebrated mana wahine. By telling stories relating to atua wahine, some ‘movers & shakers’ of Māoridom such as Merata Mita, and Eva Rickard, as well as some Māori women of today who defy stereotypes, the exhibition allowed for a greater diversity of voices to be heard. Ariana will highlight the importance of creating political spaces within our institutions, which can allow the creation of safe places to wānanga, and allow the expression previously hidden identities. This was borne out in the events and collaborations that came to fruition as a part of the exhibition programme and beyond.

Ina te mahi, he rangatira: Disordering Colonial Notions of Leadership
The concept of the rangatira conveys important clues about the personal qualities that our tūpuna valued and the behaviour to which they aspired. It operates within the theoretical framework of whakapapa, which prioritises the nurturing of relationships and the maintenance of balance between all facets of our existence.
The British imperialists’ obsession with power and control cut across our understandings about the way that authority and responsibility operate. Models of leadership that were premised on Western assumptions about the benefits of hierarchy were introduced for the specific purpose of achieving colonial domination. While the past forty years have witnessed an extraordinary push back against the forces of colonialism within Aotearoa, the toxin of colonial influence continues to permeate many of our most fundamental beliefs and practices. This presentation will focus on the concept of the rangatira in order to examine the extent to which our contemporary understanding of the term risks tightening, rather than breaking, the stranglehold of colonialism.

Auckland Libraries Māori responsiveness plan Te Kauhanganui encourages us to engage with our local community and inspire them on their journey within Te Ao Māori. During Auckland Libraries Matariki celebrations, we invited our hāpori to participate in our Rongo Māori courses.
These courses offered the opportunity to interact with rakau and become familiar with them. During the course whānau would learn about tikanga in the ngahere, plant identification and manufacturing a product from harvest.
The course was executed with great success. Join me as I share with you my beautiful experience in helping whānau reconnect with the whenua.
