Research Is Ceremony

Dr Shawn Wilson - "If your research hasn't changed you as a person - you haven't done it right."

Community Research worked with Te Tari o te Ihonuku Māori, Waipapa Taumata Rau at the Fale Pasifika, 25th November 2022, 10am to 1pm for the Research as Ceremony panel kōrero with Opaskwayak Cree scholar Shawn Wilson.

Community Research’s team; Gauri Nandedkar, PhD and Janie Walker dreamed this webinar into existence, and it was achieved with the support of M.E.A. and Kaye-Maree Dunn. The kaupapa was set by Dr Wilson who wanted to meet and share with indigenous researchers from Aotearoa and the Pacific.

This programme opened with Dr. Shawn Wilson as he shared his reflections on his research practice with First Nations people from Australia and Canada.

Dr. Albert Refiti (AUT) shared about the Fale and the ontologies of its creation.
Kapua O’Connor discussed how their team navigated their research for the book “A Fire in the Belly of Hineamaru” safely to honour pūrakau of the past.
Edmond Fehoko discussed changing the narrative around the Health and Well-being of our communities.
Atlantic Fellow Kaye-Maree Dunn was the MC and also presented on Māori Tech Mapping work and her own Māori Banking rangahau.

Many thanks to Te Kawehau Hoskins and Melinda Webber from Te Tari o Ihonuku Māori – Waipapa Taumata Rau.

The first featured video is Dr Shawn Wilsons presentation – which also can be found on MEA TV

The whole presentation of this forum including all the speakers will be available here shortly.
