Indigenous Evaluation – Using Traditional Knowledge to Guide Evaluation Theory and Practice

December 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

How and in what ways can indigenous evaluators and indigenous communities draw upon traditional knowledge to guide evaluation theory and practice?

In this webinar, experienced evaluator Kataraina Pipi (Ngati Porou, Ngati Hine) will host four indigenous keynote speakers from the Mā Te Rae Indigenous Peoples’ Conference on Evaluation. Join Kataraina, along with Paora Messiah Te Hurihanganui (Ngāti Rangiwewehi Te Arawa, Ngāti Awa and Ngāti Tūwharetoa), Dr Manulani Aluli Meyer, Marcus Akuhata-Brown and Richard Weston to hear their whakaaro on this important kaupapa.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The purpose of Mā Te Rae and the work they do.
  • The role of traditional knowledge in the evaluation process.
  •  The importance of cultural paradigms in evaluation and research.
