This webinar is presented as a part of the 'Poipoiā Ngā Tamariki: Nurture Our Children' project presented by Dr. Naomi Simmonds (Raukawa, Ngāti Huri)
Te Taonga o Taku Ngākau Mini-Conference and Thought Space Wānanga:
'Te Taonga o Taku Ngākau’ investigates the place of mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge), in developing cultural frameworks to inform how we may respond, and ultimately improve, the wellbeing of tamariki Māori.
Utilising a Kaupapa Māori methodology the project involves interviewing traditional knowledge holders, and Māori health providers, to understand the unique ways that mātauranga can inform and transform the wellbeing of tamariki and whānau.
By effectively utilising the knowledge held by those at the front line of working with tamariki and their whānau, we can ensure more collective, community, hapū and iwi involvement in the care and wellbeing of our children.
