Maori Cultural Studies/Tikanga Maori

Tikanga Māori (Māori Cultural Studies) teaches you the skills required for a community leadership role in the enhancement of Māori development. In today's rapidly evolving world you will establish a basic, yet necessary understanding of the Māori worldview and its relation to other cultures and worlds.

Please note

Māori Cultural Studies/Tikanga Māori is available as a major for B semester 2017. From 2018 Māori Cultural Studies/Tikanga Māori will not be available for new enrolments, and will be replaced by Māori and Indigenous Studies and Pacific and Indigenous Studies.

Our range of exciting cultural papers is suitable for people of all ethnicities, and brings about a new dimension to the evolving world of Māori performing and visual arts. The programme hosts an eclectic selection of new and traditional elements including kapa haka, ngā taonga pūoro and creative technologies, and promises a field of study delivered by quality academics who are fluent in Māori, and some in Pacific and European languages.

Tikanga Māori provides the option of introductory courses through to more advanced courses.
