• Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is proud to host the IIRC2024 Conference at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland

    After navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re excited to return to an in-person format, fostering connections and solidarity among Indigenous researchers. Since our last in-person conference in 2018, we’ve embraced online formats in 2020 and 2022, but nothing replaces the richness of face-to-face interactions.

  • We talk to Māori innovators and problem solvers about ways they are enabling data sovereignty for their communities.
    Under discussion will be data sovereignty solutions, data colonialism, Māori data weaponisation and ChatGTP.

  • We talk to community leaders from Tairāwhiti, Heretaunga and Te Taitokerau about what they really need for recovery and future resilience after recent devastating events.

  • This joint NPM-Science Media Centre initiative provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to get comfortable communicating with the media. This is a chance for professional development and it is helpful for researchers wanting their research to reach the general public. Researchers will have opportunities to meet and interact with the media and will upskill their practical and strategic communication skills. Entry is by selection. Media SAVVY workshops are two-day, fees-free training by the Science Media Centre:

  • Universities throughout the world are harming Indigenous peoples due to their colonial approach to Indigenous data, according to Kevin Lujan Lee––an Indigenous Chamoru (familian Capili) scholar and activist. Lee is completing his PhD at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and recently collaborated with other Indigenous academics at the 10th International Indigenous Research Conference hosted in Aotearoa last month.

  • NPM is honoured to welcome 20 Raumati Interns who will work with researchers from our national network over the summer on a diverse range of exciting projects. The Raumati Internship Programme aims to grow and support the professional development of our up-and-coming researchers. They are a passionate and enthusiastic group and we look forward to supporting them to flourish in their academic lives while making lasting connections within their professional network.
     

  • NPM was thrilled to extend a warm welcome to the directorship team from the newly funded ARC Centre of Excellence for Indigenous Futures. Hosted by the University of Queensland, the Centre is the first ever ARC Indigenous-led Centre of Excellence.

  • Each month we feature a member of our NPM Kāhui Ārahi- Research Leadership Team in our e-pānui.  This month we talked with Associate Professor Te Taka Keegan who is the Associate Dean of Māori DHEC, Associate Professor, Department of Software Engineering at the University of Waikato. He is the Co-director of AI Institute Māori Artificial Intelligence Institute and leads NPM Pae Auaha.
