This paper explores how Māori cultural processes can guide research processes. Tikanga Māori (Māori ways/traditions) based dialogue processes acknowledge relationships between people and the reasons why they have gathered together. In this paper we describe the tikanga processes used in the Kōrero Whakaaetanga project to facilitate a safe context for participants to share their thoughts and feelings about new biotechnologies.
