Kaupapa Māori Research

There is an intrinsic relationship between tangata whenua and their changing landscapes. However natural hazard research using traditional western science methods and assumptions has not taken sufficient account of mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledges) when considering past events, their effects on landscapes and communities, and possible mitigation strategies.

Our kaupapa Māori researchers are using culturally-underpinned research methods to generate fundamental mātauranga Māori and applied Māori knowledge relating to natural hazards, risk, and resilience.
