Working with Tōmaiora

Tōmaiora research projects largely fall into broadly categorised research themes. If you are considering working with Tōmaiora researchers, you may wish to contact one of the researchers in a portfolio of interest. Alternatively, you may contact the Research Director Dr Matire Harwood.

Tōmaiora research unit acknowledges that Kaupapa Māori provides the foundational World views from which all of our research is driven. As such, Tōmaiora has developed a research procedures and protocols manual that describes Kaupapa Māori research principles and practices.

If considering research with Tōmaiora, you may wish to:

  1. Contact one of the researchers in a portfolio of interest – Themes
  2. Contact the Director of Tōmaiora – Dr Sarah-Jane Paine
  3. Read the Tōmaiora manual below.

Please note that potential research projects are discussed at the Tōmaiora Business Meeting which is held on the first Tuesday of every month. Recommendations are made at the meeting and feedback will be given to potential collaborators.
