Topic

An exploration of the perceptions of Northern Māori artists about Māori art.

Abstract

Ethnographies will be collected from four Māori artists residing in and with whakapapa connections to Ngāpuhi nui tonu. Two of the artists are Kaumātua in their communities, as well as being established and recognised Māori artists (tane). The other two participants are emerging Māori artists (wahine). Each of these participants has long-standing relationships with the researcher.  As a methodology, ethnography is comparable with tikanga and Kaupapa Māori that is the inter-generational passing on of mātauranga Māori through kōrero and wānanga. This is a kaupapa Māori research in that it is giving voice to the aspirations of Northern Māori artists.
