Kīngitanga Day Celebration presentation (2016)
Guest lecture at the Waikato University Kīngitanga Day Celebrations
The topic for this presentation was Mātauranga Māori and its relationship to the Vision Mātauranga Policy document. For those interested in a slightly controversial perspective on the Vision Mātauranga Policy, in this presentation I argue that at the time of the arrival of Captain James Cook (ca. 1769), the knowledge development traditions of our tūpuna (what I characterise as an indigenous Māori transdisciplinarity) were at least 236 years ahead of the latest methodological developments in western science.
