Ako: Critical Contexts for Change - Poutama Pounamu

If we are to achieve excellence for all of our students we must work to ensure each student feels they belong within the learning environment we provide. Equity can be achieved when we are responsive to the student’s prior knowledge and experience and build new learning from these beginnings (cultural toolkit - Bruner 1996). Educators must create contexts for mauri ohooho, where a student’s mauri is nurtured, strengthened and able to flourish. This is more likely to happen when Māori students understand and value their own cultural identity, believing that they have vast potential and cultural capital upon which to draw.

We ask these questions because the IAT can be more valuable if you also describe your own self-understanding of the attitude or stereotype that the IAT measures.

Marutūahu tribes

These peoples are all descended from the ancestor Marutūahu, who came from Kāwhia on the west coast of the North Island. Before Marutūahu was born, his father Hotunui had fallen out with his father-in-law. Hotunui went to live in the Hauraki region, where he was treated badly by the local people. History. Ngati Maru is one of the four present day tribes of Marutuahu.


It is said that the fifth tribe, that is Ngati Rongo-U, was absorbed through alliances by the other Marutuahu tribes although some still choose to reassert Ngati Rongo-U identity today. Te Ara Whakamana: Mana Enhancement - AKO Solutionz. Te Ara Whakamana:Mana Enhancement had its earliest beginnings in New Zealand Education when in 2007, a Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour, Nigel Marshall, began thinking hard about how to address the growing problem of managing extreme behaviour in schools, and the striking over representation of Māori students in this area.

Whatever resources and training that were currently available to schools weren't working and daily reports of violent incidents in the media were creating a culture of fear. Nigel decided to gather his thoughts on managing behaviour into a thesis paper for his Masters Degree in Educational Psychology. Several key concerns stood out at the time. White Supremacy in our Classrooms — Ann Milne Education. This week I will go out to give talks to a variety of groups—a school, principals, teachers, mana whenua, whānau, and a district health board, about the “white spaces” in our education system and our schools.

White Supremacy in our Classrooms — Ann Milne Education

The message is the same as the one I delivered in previous weeks, months, and years, with one major difference. This week we have been forced as a country, tragically, to face the evil of white supremacy. In the past 10 days, as we have come together to support and grieve with the Muslim community, other voices, far more powerful than mine, have drawn the parallels in our history to counter the “this is not us” messages and to say emphatically, “this IS us”.
