Māori & Indigenous Studies and Te Reo Māori
Kei ngā maunga, kei ngā moana, kei ngā awa, kei ngā mana e tau mai nei, tēnā koutou katoa! Tēnei te karanga o Te Whare o Aotahi ki a koutou, nau mai, haere mai, whakatau mai. Tēnei mātou e noho iho nei kei ngā pae a Māui e mihi atu nei ki a koutou. Puritia, poipoia te aho i tukuna mai e rātou, nāwai rā, ka tākiri mai nei tōna au, me ōna hua. Mā mātou o Te Whare o Aotahi koutou e akiaki, e wero anō hoki kia ekengia ngā taumata e wawatatia nei e tātou.
Greetings to the sacred mountains, rivers, seas and the prestigious settled here, welcome! Aotahi calls you all, welcome and greetings. We who reside in the different thresholds of Māui greet you. Grab a hold of and nourish the ancestral strands we have inherited, and in time, its way and its benefits will unfurl before us. Aotahi will encourage and challenge you all to achieve that which is desired.
Our te reo Māori programme is for those starting their journey and people with existing reo Māori. Inspiring, challenging and encouraging students is why we are here. Make the most of real-world experiences with Te Ao Māori through the Māui Lab, relax at a number of Aotahi events, and be supported in your studies.
Te ao Māori moves fast and Māori Studies has to keep up. To give our graduates the skills to help shape our destiny, Māori Studies should drive our future and celebrate our past. Aotahi will connect you with a dynamic staff at the forefront of research. Our lecturers are routinely nominated for awards and their research has been presented around the globe.
Explore your undergraduate and postgraduate study options with Aotahi.
We support our students to access scholarships from UC and the Māori community.
Our graduates are all over the world having amazing, diverse and inspiring careers.
Join us for regular events - as well as learning, we like to eat, celebrate and laugh together.
