Key content

Launching of the publication Whakatipuranga Arapiki Ako


And this particular document, Whakatipuranga Arapiki Ako, just talks about some of those key elements that are particular to Māori and it poses them as possible solutions that can help in the teaching of literacy to Māori. We understand there are issues around where, unfortunately Māori are in that growing area of those who are growing in their illiterate skills – lack of literacy. So this is an approach to actually start building and shifting and closing that gap around illiterate so that they do become literate, you know lifts the literacy levels.

Our particular focus here is to provide a particular accent for Māori.

One of the key things that we need to understand is that there has to be a connection between what it is we’re delivering and the students. So I need to make sure there’s a connection in place to enable the learning to actually take root and for it to be meaningful. Otherwise it’s just again, things that are just moving in and around these students, they continue to move on, the status quo remains the same, they continue to miss the messages that are delivered, and then the status quo stays the same. So we need to stop, we need a point where people need to reflect, understand where it is we are, understand where it’s a Māori issue it requires a Māori response. Hence, the part we play is providing some information in how that Māori response could look like.

For me, it’s understanding what is my responsibility as a Tuhoe person. It’s to ensure I understand my language, I understand my culture, I understand my rules of engagement so I am aware and familiar with them. It’s my responsibility to ensure I be there. And it’s taking that message to other Māori and saying, "Your responsibility is to learn your own language, your own cultural traditions and practices and processes, which then draw your foundation for learning". That’s one of the hopes that we hope this document will begin to show.
