Te Kotahi Research Institute

Our vision is to be a world recognised Kaupapa Māori Institute that contributes to Māori and Indigenous aspirations through transformative research excellence.

Te Kotahi Research Institute (TKRI) is the unified vision of Te Rōpū Manukura, a unique advisory body representing all iwi (tribes) within the University’s region. The Institute draws inspiration from Sir Robert Te Kotahi Mahuta, the founding Director of the Centre of Māori Studies Research established in the 1970s at the University of Waikato. The centre was the first of its kind which over ensuing years helped generate a wealth of research for and about Māori that crosses into every faculty of the University.
