Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

A critical examination of the diverse and multiple realities of being Māori in changing worlds, highlighting the impact of local and global forces on culture and identity and the relationship between Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the changing cultural and political landscapes of Aotearoa.

This course considers the changes in Tikanga Māori and their effects within whānau, hapū and iwi contexts, as well as situating these changes within the political context of rangatiratanga and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. The impact of colonisation and globalisation are considered in relation to Māori culture and identities.
