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.

'Te Honongona' Urban Māori Stories
ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
A Collins' Guide to Cultural Colour Blindness
Dr Rawiri Taonui: Utilising ‘white’ as a metaphor for ‘a person or woman of colour’ conveys connotations of white superiority.
If we legalise Cannabis, Maori must be given a leading role in industry to influence it
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: If we are going to legalise cannabis, then Māori must be given a leading role in the newly established legal industry.
