to services and projects
Waipapa Taumata Rau University of Auckland has hired two Māori leaders to apply mātauranga Māori to the design and delivery of its services and projects.
Tama Davis (Ngāti Whātua, Ngāti Haua and Ngāti Tuwharetoa) and Bernie O’Donnell (Te Atiawa, Ngāti Mutunga, Ngā Ruahinerangi, Ngāti Ruanui and Ngāi Tahu) will share the new Poutaki Mātauranga Māori role.
They have been appointed by UniServices, which is the research application and commercialisation company at the university.
The role will focus on bringing a te Ao Māori and tikanga Māori lens to the businesses UniServices manages.
