“Ko te whakapono ki a koe anō te ngako o te angitu”
“Self-belief is the essence of success”
My original research contribution to Māori Knowledge & Development has been in two main areas, urbanisation and tribalisation. Urbanisation as a phenomenon has received little serious attention outside of the work Joan Metge in the 1960s. There has been a tendency to treat urbanization as the antithesis of traditional Māori life even though 80% of Māori live in an urban situation.
