  • host an international celebration of Indigenous lead research
  • foster an international gathering of Indigenous researchers in all disciplines to share research, inspire new research connections and promote research excellence
  • profile the innovation in multi-disciplinary Indigenous knowledges and in developing Indigenous research methodologies, theories, and practices
  • grow Indigenous lead research within Aotearoa New Zealand and its links with the rest of the world
  • enable a conference that engages with a broad range of critical issues for Indigenous communities leading to clear outcomes for action and solution
  • provide a high impact with high value research sharing experience with multiple opportunities for engagement and learning
  • extend the reputation of NPM as a nationally and internationally recognised and sought after centre for its expertise and innovation in transformative Māori focused multidisciplinary research

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s vision is of Māori leading New Zealand into the future. To reap the benefits of the nation’s changing demographics it is critical that Māori are engaged in research and decision making in all disciplines and in all sectors.  NPM research realises Māori aspirations for positive engagement in national life, enhances the recognition of our excellence in Indigenous scholarship both nationally and internationally and provides solutions to major challenges facing humanity in local and global settings. Our entire research programme is Māori designed and led. 

Call for abstracts will re-open soon.
