Māori History Te Takanga o te Wā is new resource that is not designed as a list of lessons or learning experiences. Rather it provides a framework to support teachers to teach Māori history with their students. The content and context that you choose for your class could focus on building quality and collaborative engagement with your local iwi and hapū. The stories and histories relating to your school’s geographic location will assist you to instill a deeper sense of personal identity and belonging for every student. This resource provides Māori conceptual thinking to frame the design including:

  • whakapapa
  • tūrangawaewae
  • mana motuhake
  • kaitiakitanga
  • whanaungatanga.

Learning outcomes

Participants will:

  • explore the resource Māori History/ Te Takanga o te wā which meets the aspirations of The New Zealand Curriculum, principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, inclusion, and cultural diversity
  • understand how the past has shaped us, to look to the past to inform the present
  • create opportunities for teachers to link their community to significant events, to understand that they are part of a larger story, a part of history
  • use a student-centred, localised curriculum, inquiry learning approach to the history of local people and places
  • learn history through Māori conceptual understandings.
