Arotake (Evaluation): Rangimatauru & Rangi Parauri
The pūrākau of Mataora, tells the story of an ariki (high chief) who had believed he was not accountable to anybody. However, guided by the love he had for his wife, Niwareka, Mataora became a kaitiaki for changing attitudes, beliefs and behaviour; firstly, his own and then actively influencing changes in those around him. Niwareka, who was gifted with all the healing properties of her tīpuna, would heal Mataora and play an important part in Mataora’s recovery. Guided by the knowledge embedded in the pūrākau of Mataora and Niwareka, Te Whare Wānanga o Te Kurahuna understands that addressing equity for Māori requires a uniquely transformative indigenous approach immersed in Te Ao Māori.
Te Aka Whai Ora is supporting Te Kurahuna to deliver Rangimatauru and Rangi Parauri Mataora training to clinical and non-clinical Māori hauora workers. Included in this is an arotake (evaluation). As tauira in Rangimatauru and/or Rangi Parauri you play a key role in deepening our understanding of how the Mataora workforce is growing Indigenous innovation and change in Aotearoa.
