The principals of Whakapapa, Te Reo, Tikanga Maori, Rangatirantanga and Whanau are integral to research, informing researchers of the ways in which Maori view the world, think, learn and deal with knowledge. Also providing information about the relationships Maori form with others, with nature, and with the land. Tikanga Maori provides insight to customs, ethics and cultural behaviours.
The principles of Kaupapa Maori relate and are embedded in my practice. They provided essential information that enable me to facilitate learning situations that will promote learner agency, purpose and passion.
This blog will track my learning journey with MIND LAB and how I implement this new knowledge into practice.
