Taonga Matauranga and the NZ Qualifications Authority



Toi discusses the NZQA system as a threat to Maoritanga, that its matrix structure is a Pakeha structure that doesnt work for them either. "Maori have Maori structures developed over centuries to empower our people, to increase the options, to acknowledge that nga aho/connections are what makes the difference between impotent theory and potent practice"
