Māori and Pasifika Professional Development Hui Fono 2019

By Chanel Phillips, Otago University
This year the Hui Fono was held from February 13-15 at Te Wharewaka o Pōneke, Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington).

The theme was Islands in the S.T.R.E.A.M – Science, Technology, Relationships, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. These days mainstream educators are stressing the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). For Māori and Pasifika, Arts and Relationships are also vital parts of an effective education too.
