Te Wā o Le Vā
Ani Pahuru-Huriwai & Malia Patea-Taylor
This workshop will focus on the importance of relationships, in particular that between tangata whenua in Aotearoa and their Pacific relatives, those born in the home lands, and those “NZ-made”. Through a culturally-centred model we explore our whakapapa connections throughout Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa and explore the importance of those ancient connections and shared histories to creating enduring relationships today in Aotearoa.

Skills are the largest industry training organisation (ITO) in the country. They have been helping train up the next generation of tradies and professionals and working with industries to ensure that qualifications provide them, and employers, with the right skills. From electricians to security guards, the Māori and Pasifika team will be at Hui Fono to talk about their work and the apprenticeship scheme.

Dr Jodie Hunter
“Like counting taro instead of tennis balls can make the difference.”
Come meet the Cook Island Mathematician! Dr Jodie Hunter who is a Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Education at Massey University. She teaches on the subjects of Mathematics and Pasifika education, putting culture, language and social contexts at the centre. Did we mention maths runs in the family. Her māmā is Dr Bobbie Hunter who is also a mathematician and well known for her work in contributing to Pasifika learners doing better in the subject area.

Dr Bobbie Hunter
“I think of tapa and tīvaevae as growing patterns, and growing patterns are very algebraic”
Dr Bobbie Hunter, is Jodie’s māmā, and also a senior lecturer and researcher in mathematics education at the Massey University Albany campus. She has developed ways of linking mathematical concepts to cultural norms. Dr Hunter, who developed a love of maths through watching her Cook Islands mother measuring and making geometric patterns for intricate tivaevae (fabric art) patterns, says maths teaching needs to be done in a cultural framework using problem-solving examples that reflect the lives of the students.

As well as being beautiful, Hīnātore represents a new way of empowering learning at Te Papa. There learning programmes are learner-centred, hands-on, and collaborative. The magic happens between learners of all ages, educators, and our staff – we’re all learning from one another.
