New Zealand academics disagree with comments by a top UK biologist dismissing mātauranga Māori.
The comments were made by Oxford University's Richard Dawkins, one of the world's leading public intellectuals, during an interview with Newshub national correspondent Patrick Gower.
His comments come as the teaching of mātauranga Māori - or traditional Māori knowledge - has expanded in schools in recent years.
