Te Whare Wānanga o Te Kurahuna Report 2021
An overview of our activities and finances in the 2021 financial year.
Did you know?!
Despite high levels of health INEQUITY for MĀORI being well documented and widely discussed for several DECADES this INEQUITY has PERSISTED.
Over 30 years later INSTITUTIONAL RACISM continues to be positioned as CENTRAL in addressing health inequity for Māori.
Māori voices have for decades, asserted that if inequities for Māori are to be addressed, Whānau MUST be placed at the CENTRE of solutions.

How we opererationalise the principle Tēnei te Pō, Nau mai te Ao in our workplace
Taken from a Te Kurahuna karakia this principle speaks to our purpose, it speaks to indigenising our space as we work towards confronting institutional racism, transforming systems and shifting mindsets by upholding and insisting that mātauranga Māori guides us in our practice.
This is the space of potential where, as a collective, we confront our anxieties as we practice te reo Māori with one another, where we reawaken dormant frequencies by chanting mōteatea as a team and where we are constantly striving to stand strong in a Māori world view, committed to indigenous design and implementation even though the tides of deeply set colonised thinking continue their threat to consume us.
