Rauika Māngai – A Guide to Vision Mātauranga

[PDF 3497 KB]

There is no better voice to describe how to bring the greatest success from Vision Mātauranga, than the one that has experienced it deeply, has lived and breathed it, has jumped in elbows and knees-deep, has suffered and succeeded, and has examined and reflected on it over many, many years. Here, we present a chorus of these voices, from an experienced ensemble of Māori researchers and facilitators who work at the interface between the Māori and Scientific worlds.
