Welcome to the Kaupapa Maori and Rangahau website. This is a site dedicated to a discussion of issues related to Kaupapa Māori. This website has been established to assist in the development of whānau, hapū and iwi.

Kaupapa Māori research offers a framework for Māori to engage in 'culturally safe' (Irwin, 1994) research. Kaupapa Māori research explicitly aims for transformative outcomes and encourages Māori to remain as Māori through all phases of the research process.

This website  aims to assist Māori researchers through the rangahau process. A process that does not have a clear beginning or end, it is not linear or straightforward. Rather rangahau can sometimes be messy, dangerous, consuming and exhausting. This is a 'space' where Māori researchers share their ideas, issue cautionary tales and encourage innovative research practice. It is not a definitive explanation of rangahau but merely a point from which to reflect, gather inspiration or add ideas to your kete.

Kia kaha Māori mā, kia tika hoki te rangahau hei whai hua mo te iwi me ngā whānau. Save Save Save Save
