Te Rangahau Aro-Māori
Kaupapa Māori-centred research that weaves mātauranga Māori and science together for te taiao and Māori communities to thrive.
Our research is principle-led by ngā mana pou.
We develop future-focused solutions generated from both mātauranga Māori and science, with and by Māori and for the benefit of Aotearoa New Zealand.
We recognise and value the knowledge Māori bring to research collaborations and we co-lead and co-develop solutions with Māori to ensure positive impact and benefit for Māori.
We enable tailored approaches for Māori in order to form deeper relationships with a whānau, hapū, iwi, communities and Māori organisations including business.
We aim to have the knowledge system of mātauranga Māori in equal footing with science and existing structures that have helped support positive change in farming practices and food production in Aotearoa over the decades.
Acknowledging kaitiaki obligations by placing te taiao first in the development of our research
