This hybrid symposium will promote and celebrate indigenous knowledge(s), with a specific focus on maramataka (the Māori lunar calendar), kaulana mahina (the Hawaiian lunar calendar) and tātai arorangi (Māori celestial knowledge). Experts in these fields will share their knowledge with participants, including international presenters from Hawai’i and Nukutere (Cook Islands). This will provide a unique opportunity for collaboration between indigenous knowledge holders from across Te Moana nui ā Kiwa, which will add to the richness of the knowledge that is shared. The focus of the symposium will be on embedding indigenous knowledge in education. The symposium will include presentations from indigenous practitioners and knowledge holders, as well as educators who have successfully embedded indigenous knowledge(s) into their kura/kula curriculums and/or educational settings.

This symposium will be held over 2 days. Day 1 will follow a traditional symposium format, with presentations from our keynote speakers. However, Day 2 will consist of interactive workshops which will give participants the opportunity for active participation, contribution and hands on learning. Numbers for in-person attendance are limited, therefore, preference will be given to practitioners and educators who are actively working in this space. However, this is a hybrid event and will be streamed online for those who are not able to attend in person.
