Registrations and expressions of interest are now open for the Mātauranga Māori within New Zealand Libraries workshop, developed and offered by Te Rōpū Whakahau to support LIANZA professional development and registration schemes.

The Mātauranga Māori within New Zealand Libraries workshop is designed to provide a targeted development opportunity for information professionals. The workshop is structured on the understanding of Mātauranga Māori exists in the wider context of tikanga and Te Reo Māori and the content is underpinned by a kaupapa Māori philosophy where traditional Māori values and practices are applied in context.

You will learn and understand:

  • the influence that tikanga and te reo Māori assumes in the development of Māori knowledge constructs and principles
  • the importance of kaupapa Māori methodologies in supporting the researching needs of Māori clients
  • the relevance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi to the development and delivery of library and information services and resources

Whakataukī
Kua eke i runga i te waka kotahi.
Kia mahara tātou kei hoe whakatuarā.
Kia tika anō te tikanga o te hoe ki tō te hunga o te ihu.
Kei huri te hunga o te kei ki te hoe whakamuri.

(Merata & Kawharu, 2008)

In acknowledgement of the community working together, paddling forwards with appropriate guidance from those at the helm.
