Raniera Hauraki Watene, Bachelor of Arts (Māori) – Te Whakangungutanga Ki Ngā Tāiro a Kupe Graduate
Raniera Hauraki Watene is feeling re-energised, and he’s hoping to share that feeling.
The 23-year-old has a passion for re-telling stories – not just any stories, but rather those unique to Tairāwhiti, Ngāti Porou and Aotearoa. He’s even written a couple of children’s books and is teaming up with an artist friend from EIT’s Toihoukura to see the project through to completion.
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.
