Māori social identities in New Zealand and Hawai'i

Nikora, Linda Waimarie January 2007 (has links)
This research is comprised of two narrative interview studies of Māori in two different settings, New Zealand (n=20) and Hawai'i (n=30). The data was gathered over the 1994-1996 period. The two settings have some commonalities and differences. In both settings Māori are required to make decisions about the continuity of their ethnic Māori identities and hereditary cultural identities of iwi, hapu and whanau, and the part that they wish these identities to play in their daily lives. The focus of this research was about how Māori create meaning in their lives and maintain their social identities across and within those contexts they move through. The findings of this research suggest that Māori in New Zealand continue to value and gain meaning and satisfaction from their cultural collectivities and the social identities derived from them. However, the results tend to suggest that there are changes in the ways that individuals conceptualise these identities and concomitantly, how they see of themselves. For New Zealand participants, conceptions of hapu and iwi appear to be converging with an increasing focus on the physicality of marae, its environment and symbolism, and the social events and relationships negotiated in that space. New Zealand participants saw some hapu and iwi maintenance activities as more legitimate than others. More value was placed on returning to hapu and iwi homelands however irregular these returns were. In contrast, conceptions of hapu and iwi held by participants in Hawai'i seemed less intense. There were few opportunities to engage with other hapu or iwi members. Being Māori had greater meaning and was understood, probed and valued by others in the culturally plural context of Hawai'i. For New Zealand participants, being Māori was enacted in the context of being a discriminated, negatively constructed minority. All were aware of the defining effect that the presence of a dominant majority could have and countered these effects by engaging in social justice and in-group solidarity activities. The changing identity conceptions held by members of Māori social groups will have implications for a sense of community and social cohesion, for tribal asset management, service delivery and crown settlement processes. If Māori are redefining and renegotiating their social identities to achieve greater meaning and satisfaction then these changes are important to respond to and recognise.

Oranga whānau, oranga niho: The oral health status of 5-year-old Māori children. A case study

Te Amo, Kirstin Mei January 2007 (has links)
Research has shown that the oral health of Māori is far worse than non-Māori across all age groups. The objective of this research study was to assess the dental wellbeing of 5-year olds with a specific focus on Māori children currently residing in the Hamilton City region. In addition, this research focused on the impact that social, economic, cultural and environmental factors have on oral health. A total of 32 participants were invited to take part in this research: 15 5-year-old children from three selected schools, 15 (of the children's) caregivers and 2 dental therapists who work in the Hamilton City region. The findings indicated that overall Māori children and children of lower socio-economic status had a much higher prevalence of dental caries (tooth decay) than non-Māori children and children of higher socio-economic status. A number of contributing factors were shown to be responsible for this disparity including the cultural inappropriateness of oral health services and resources, affordability, role-modelling, parental awareness and education, and the transient nature of families. It was found that no one strategy or intervention will achieve dramatic improvements in Māori oral health as a concerted effort is required by Local and Central Government, the Health Sector and Māori communities.

Applying Kaupapa Māori Processes to Documentary Film.

Waititi, Kahurangi Rora January 2007 (has links)
This thesis explores the application of Kaupapa Māori processes to documentary filmmaking through practiced-led research. The need for this research came to light through the experience of witnessing unacceptable behaviour shown by film crews towards kaumātua who were attending the 2006 28th Māori Battalion Reunion. In reflecting on this experience and considering my own filming experience as a person with a Te Ao Māori background, the basis for this argument was conceived. This thesis argues that there are alternative ways in which filming can be conducted by considering processes that already exist within Māori practices and philosophies. This Thesis, therefore, investigates alternative processes of filming that have developed from a Kaupapa Māori perspective through practical filming experience. An historical overview of the relationship between Māori, media and filming practices have been provided to give context to this discussion. The application of Kaupapa Māori processes to film was considered through the use of Marae protocol and philosophies. The application of these concepts was supported by the creative research which was utilised by referencing specific examples. The reader is, therefore, instructed to refer to the DVD in the front of the thesis as referenced in the written text.

Whanau Whakapakari: a Māori-centred approach to child rearing and Parent-training programmes

Herbert, Averil May Lloyd January 2001 (has links)
The goal of this Whanau Whakapakari (Strengthening Families) research was to define critical aspects of Māori experiences and views on child-rearing practices, and to describe whanau (extended family) values and expectations for tamariki (children) and mokopuna (grandchildren). Furthermore, these Māori views were included in culturally adapted parent-training programmes. The overall aim was to devise an approach to emphasise client strengths and provide best outcomes for research participants. Qualitative aspects included discussing the research processes in the Māori community by acknowledging the roles of whanau, hapu (sub-tribal), and iwi (tribal) structures. I also identified the importance of pan-tribal and urban Māori groups in the current research. As the project developed, an ongoing consultation and feedback protocol was established to ensure that Māori views on the research and the written outcomes were recognised. In-depth interviews with kaumatua (elders), and focus groups with Māori service providers and Māori parents were analysed qualitatively to establish Māori values in child rearing and parenting, and the knowledge and skills that contribute to effective parenting and family functioning. Values identified from these participants confirmed the central role of whanaungatanga (family connections), whakapapa (genealogy), and awhinatanga (support) for Māori. Two culturally adapted parent-training programmes, the Matuatanga (Parenting) Relationships Model and the Matuatanga Values Model programmes, were developed and compared with a Standard Parent Training programme. The Matuatanga Relationships Model programme emphasised the importance of child, parent and whanau relationships and interactions. The Matuatanga Values Model programme emphasised Māori values derived from the qualitative data - whanaungatanga, whakapapa and awhinatanga. A range of pre- and post-training measures were undertaken to identify acceptable and appropriate measures for quantifying parent-training outcomes. These included questions on support networks, parent expectations of children, parental self-efficacy, parental self-rating, critical-incident scenarios, and programme evaluation. While 78 participants attended at least one of the research sessions 22 participants provided pre- and post-training measures for the Whanau Whakapakari programmes. Results showed that there was a medium effect size improvement across all Standard Parent Training and Matuatanga Model programmes and a statistically significant improvement in the Standard Parent Training and Matuatanga Relationship Model programmes. There were no statistically significant differences between the outcomes of the different programmes but qualitative differences from evaluation and feedback data were considered in identifying specific skills acquisition, general understanding and enjoyment components in the programmes. Results from the different measures indicated that parent expectations and critical-incident scenario measures provided the most information on post-training changes. Analysis of the outcome data with the attendance patterns confirmed the value of parent-training programmes per se and indicated that at least in the short term, parent effectiveness scores continued to improve for participants who continued to attend for more than one programme. Programme follow-ups considered natural whanau supports in the Māori community and issues of social and cultural validity. Integration of standard parent-training concepts and cultural concepts suggest a multi-dimensional approach which recognises parenting skills acquisition and cultural validation of whanau concepts relevant to parenting for Māori.

Te whatu o poutini: a visual art exploration of new media storytelling

Lee, Michelle January 2007 (has links)
This visual art project has explored the ancient Maori pukorero (oral tradition) of Te Whatu o Poutini (The Eye of Poutini) that articulates the journey of Poutini Taniwha, Waitaiki and Tamaahua from Tuhua (Mayor Island) in the Bay of Plenty, to the Arahura River. An oral geological map, the pukorero also expresses through cultural values, the intimate spiritual relationship Ngati Waewae have with our tupuna, the Arahura River, pounamu stone and each other. Exploring the genres of digital storytelling and video art installation, this project combines them as new media storytelling. The current experience of colonisation and urbanisation emotionally parallel the abduction, transformation and multiple places of belonging experienced by the tupuna Waitaiki at the hand of Poutini Taniwha. The project explores and acknowledges this connection. The survival, restoration and celebration of Ngati Waewae culture and the need to assert control of our own destinies has infused every component of the project.

Rapua te ora : a role for budget holding in the provision of public health services for Maori.

Waldon, John Allan, n/a January 2000 (has links)
Maori health development advanced with the Hui Taumata (1984) and with the emergence of by Maori for Maori health service delivery. Rapua te ora, by Maori for Maori health service delivery. Rapua te ora, by Maori for Maori health service delivery is an expression of tino rangatiratanga. The case study of budget holding presents a Maori analysis of contemporary health services delivery to meet the needs of Maori. Maori engage in research as dynamic participants who define their roles. Maori provide new analyses of health whilst adding to the diversity of views within health research, health services administration, and health services management. Nested case study method is used to prepare this thesis. Methods nested within the case study are a literature review; empowerment evaluation, information systems strategy, provider profile method, and structural analysis. Kaupapa Maori theory, which underpins the Maori centered research approach, is used to ensure the research objectives are relevant and meet needs of Maori. Budget holding is a mechanism for provider development, systematically linking national public health oblectives to local and regional needs. At different levels of development Maori providers, new to public health, require careful anf thoughtful administration, where necessary, thoughtful management. The benefits for administrating the provision of public health services for Maori are clear vertical accountability to the purchaser, clear local accountabilities, and provider development consistent with local Maori health needs. Conclusions drawn from this case study are that Maori provider development is a response to health reforms characterised by multiple transformations of health service funding. Provider development and meeting disparate accountabilities are important issues for sustainability and the development of Maori providers for public health, and are applicable to the wider community, both national and international.
