Nga Pae o te Maramatanga, New Zealand’s Maori Centre of Research Excellence, is holding its biennial Traditional Knowledge Conference in June 2010.
4TH INTERNATIONAL INDIGENOUS TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE CONFERENCE, 6-9 JUNE 2010, AUCKLAND, AOTEAROA/NEW ZEALAND
“Kei muri i te awe kapara he tangata ke – behind the tattooed face a stranger stands: Recognising, engaging, understanding difference”
The Conference will discuss strategies for generating social, educational, intellectual, and economic opportunities by building relationships that engage, understand, and accommodate difference to overcome the adverse effects resulting from failure to understand sufficiently the differences among indigenous and non-indigenous communities and societies.
Target groups for the conference include: academics, emerging researchers, graduate students; community groups/workers/activists; tribal and community elders and leaders; and local and national government representatives. Welcome one and all!
