Ko Te Kura Nui o Waipareira he kaupapa i whakatūria mai ai i te tau 2017, kia mārama, kia mōhio ai te whānau whānui ki te āhua ngā mahi e mahia nei e tātou me ngā hīkoitanga e hīkoitia nei e tātou. Ko te ihonui o te kaupapa mō tēnei tau, ko te Manaakitanga. Koinei tētahi o ngā mātāpono nui o Te Ao Māori, arā, he akiaki i te mana o te tangata. Kia kaha rā ki te tuku mai i ngā kōrero hei whakamārama, hei whakamōhio mā te ao whānui.
This is a call for submissions for written contributions to Issue 2 of the Te Whānau o Waipareira research journal, Te Kura Nui o Waipareira.
Te Kura Nui o Waipareira was established in 2017 as a vehicle to share new insights and perspectives arising from indigenous research and Whānau Ora-based practice enhancing the mana of whānau, hapū, iwi and hāpori across Aotearoa. The Journal provides an important vehicle to ensure that the diverse voices of practitioners, researchers and whānau can be heard.
For Issue two we invite anyone who may wish to share any important journey, insight or perspective with our wider whānau community that links to the theme of this issue, Manaakitanga, a fundamental dimension that sits at the heart of our Māori practices, philosophies and endeavours.
Manaakitanga is considered here as a broad concept of nourishing or caring for individuals, whānau and communities physically, spiritually and/or culturally. It is where the mana of others is recognised and given due respect to the elevation or enhancement of all. This could be enacted through providing appropriate resources for best practice, or upholding Māori values and tikanga such as Te Reo, it could be reflected in the philosophy and practice of engaging individuals and whānau in programmes in a way that upholds their mana, or hosting with generosity enabling better outcomes. Journal submissions could encompass manaakitanga in action, such as case studies, a reflection on work practice, as well as research-based insights, programmes or practices.
Expressions of interest are encouraged by 15 March 2018. Please include a proposed title and short outline. The style guide can be accessed here.
Final submissions are due 1 May 2018.
We welcome submissions from practitioners and will support your journey to publication. For further information and to submit your article please contact Dr Tanya Allport: Tanya.firstname.lastname@example.org
