The Ngai Tahu Research Centre will share results of a five year research programme on the impact of colonisation on Maori through a series of lectures next week at the University of Canterbury.
He Kokonga Whare is an attempt to document the high rates of trauma Maori people experience and correlated it with a range of health and social problems, from heart disease to imprisonment.
Each of the Roadshow Lectures explores a different topic related to the themes of trauma and healing, including: Maori traditional approaches to trauma; alienation from land; imprisonment; and sexual violence.
