kaupapamaori.com: E taunaki ana i te wiki o te reo Māori
Kua mahuta ake he pae tukutuku Māori hou hei taunaki i ngā kairangahau Māori, me ngā mātanga mātauranga.
Nā te umanga rangahau motuhake Māori a Māori and Indigenous Analysis Ltd rāua ko te umanga whakawhanake rawa Māori a Rautaki Ltd tēnei kaupapa i waihanga.
Hei tā te tumu whakahaere o Māori and Indigenous Analysis Ltd a Tākuta Leonie Pihama, “He mea whakarite te pae tukutuku nei e mātau kia wātea ake ngā rawa kaupapa Māori ki te iwi Māori”.
“Kua whakamāoritia ngā körero hei tautoko i te
kaupapa o te wiki o te reo Māori.”
Hei tā te tumu whakahaere o Rautaki Ltd a Jenny Lee, “he koha tēnei nā mātau hei whakaü i to tātau reo rangatira”.
I toko ake te whakaaro kia whakamāoritia ngā körero, i te mea ruarua noaiho ngā rawa rangahau kei roto i te reo Māori. Nā Ngā Pae o te Maramatanga rātou ko Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, ko te Tertiary Education Commission te pütea taunaki.
E ai ki a Tākuta Leonie Pihama, he taumatua tēnei mö te hunga e pïkau ana i ngā mahi kaupapa Māori, “Ka mahi tahi mātau me ngā kairangahau Māori, mātanga mātauranga hoki i roto i ngā marama e ono e haere ake nei, ki te whakaputa i ngā mahi mā roto i te pae tukutuku nei”.
Kaupapamaori.com site launched to support Māori Language Week
A new Māori internet site that has been developed to support Māori researchers and academics is now available online. Kaupapamāori.com has been developed by independent research company Māori and Indigenous Analysis Ltd with Māori resource development company Rautaki Ltd.
Research Director Dr Leonie Pihama states “the site has been developed to make Kaupapa Māori resources more widely available to our people.” In support of Te Reo Māori week the companies have developed the home pages and links in te reo Māori. “It’s our contribution to affirm te reo Māori” states Rautaki Director Jenny Lee. “There are few research resources actually written in te reo Māori so we decided that we would create the main part of the site in te reo Māori”.
The pilot project has been funded by Ngā Pae o Te Māramatanga, the National Māori Centre of Research Excellence, and further support has been provided through a Tertiary Education Commission e-learning Development Fund that has been secured by Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi.
Dr Pihama states “The site is dedicated to work that has a Kaupapa Māori approach and we will be working with Māori academics and researchers over the next six months to make their work more available through the site.”
