Pae | Pātai

NPM research solves real world challenges facing Māori, in Māori-determined and inspired ways, allowing for sustainable relationships that grow the mana (respect and regard) and mauri (life essence) of the world we inhabit. We gather our expertise within four Te Ao Māori knowledge and excellence clusters or Pae:

  1. Pae Ahurei - Living Uniquely: Cherish and celebrate distinctively Māori futures.
  2. Pae Tawhiti - Living Lightly: Grow responsible social, economic and environmental relationships.
  3. Pae Ora - Living Well: Influence positive change for healthy and meaningful lives.
  4. Pae Auaha - Living Smartly: Nurture wise and ethical technological transformations.

An addition four Pātai or critical systems-oriented questions generate transformative interventions and policy advice for stakeholders and next users. All of our research will contribute mātauranga-informed theories, models and evidenced solutions in response to our Pātai. Our Pātai serve to integrate and energise our programme and Pae to synthesize our research for next stage impact and outcomes.

  1. Pātai Te Ao Māori - How can te reo, tikanga and mātauranga continue to inform our futures?
  2. Pātai Whānau - How can whānau wellbeing be realised in everyday life?
  3. Pātai Mauri - How can mātauranga inform and drive sustainable and just societal practices?
  4. Pātai Puāwai - How can research be used transformatively to accelerate the achievement of flourishing Māori futures?

The Pae and Pātai give form to our 7.5 year programme of research and orient and shape all activities of the Centre, and form the basis of our reporting on the impacts arising from the research that we undertake through our Matakitenga Research Framework.
