He Puna Kōrero (Journal of Maori and Pacific Development)


Te Puawaitanga o te Puawānanga

Ko te Puawānanga tēnei e whakaputa nei i te pia tangi wharauroa, 'ka ngahoro te tikotiko piere . . . te putanga o te hinu!'

'The flowering Clematis exudes its fragrance, announcing a time of plenty and the gathering in of abundance'.

Kua puta atu te reo o Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao. He karanga ki ngā tai e whā kia anga atu ngā kanohi ki ngā maunga teitei o te mātauranga, kia whātoro ngā ringa ki ngā maurea o te ao whānui, kia tīhorea a taitea kia tū ko taikākā anake. Hopukia ngā taonga ka kitea e koe hei whakawhānui ake i tōu māramatanga, waiho iho ngā kapenga ki tahaki.

I share with my colleagues and students the pleasure in introducing He Puna Kōrero: The Journal of Maori and Pacific Development. It indeed announces the maturing of the School of Māori and Pacific Development and its existence at Waikato University. As the opening pepeha states metaphorically, 'The Puawānanga is reaching its tendrils beyond the canopy of the Forest of Tāne to share its flowering with the wider world.'

The aim of this journal is to provide a forum for writers expressing views on their perspectives on Māori and Pacific development (Pacific being the whole region including the land masses that form its basin). In representing matters of concern in the development of Māori and Indigenous development, the hope is that by the engagement of an extensive range of interests, both national and the international arena of indigenous people's developments, there will be a wide pool of informed scholarship to draw ideas from. We invite your participation.
