Mātauranga Māori and Te Reo Māori

Overview

Mātauranga Māori is a dynamic system of knowledge that draws upon many concepts and is expressed and applied in many ways. It is aspirational, inspirational and continuously evolving, encompassing the past, the present and the future. To teach mātauranga Māori with integrity, an acknowledgment and understanding of whānau, hapū and iwi is required in order to support kura to embed learning in a way that acknowledges your specific needs to support and grow kaiako and ākonga knowledge and application. Teaching with integrity, Mātauranga Māori is a dynamic system of knowledge that draws on many concepts and is expressed and applied in many ways. It’s aspirational, inspirational and continuously evolving.

Mātauranga Māori encompasses the past, present and the future and to teach it, one needs to acknowledge and have an understanding of whānau, hapū and iwi. Strengthening kaiako fluency in te reo also strengthens your capability and confidence to embed the elements that make up mātauranga Māori into your practice. It will empower both ākonga and kaiako to succeed in ways that are cognisant of who you are. Strengthening kaiako fluency in te reo will also empower ākonga to create new knowledge and develop their own Māori world view to meet future challenges or opportunities confidently as well as approach other world views empathetically.
