Towards a Māori genuine progress indicator (GPI)


This powerpoint presentation movie (with audio) is a recording of a presentation given to whānau from Te Arawa Lakes Trust, Te Kotahitanga O Te Arawa Fisheries, Te Pumautanga o Te Arawa Trust and Te Arawa Whanau Ora on the 19th February 2018, (10-12pm) in the Nukuteapiapi Board Room of the Te Arawa Lakes Trust building in Rotorua.

Towards a Māori GPI
The title of this presentation is ‘Towards a Māori GPI’. The aim of this presentation was to provide an outline of an MBIE funded research programme between Te Pumautanga o Te Arawa Trust and the whānau of Te Toi Ōhanga that focuses on the creation of a Māori cultural genuine progress indicator (GPI). Because this is a new area of research, this presentation attempts to provide an historical context to this project that focuses on the role that: (i) the Māori cultural economy (i.e. Ōhanga Māori) and (ii) an emerging Māori cultural approach to accounting (i.e. Tātari Tauutuutu) play in (iii) Māori cultural survival and wellbeing. In addressing these topics, this presentation also provides an explanation of just what the term ‘Māori cultural survival’ means in a modern-day context and why conventional financial accounting theory and practice is limited in its ability to assist Māori communities in achieving this goal.
