[image]A special Maori-focused edition of the University of Otago’s annual publication of research highlights will be sent to ethnic peoples around the world, as a leading example of academic partnerships with indigenous populations. [excerpt] The university releases an annual glossy research publication titled He Kitenga as a snapshot of its most outstanding research projects being undertaken by academic staff and students. Otago vice-chancellor Prof Harlene Hayne this week formally released the first edition of He Kitenga Maori – a companion piece to He Kitenga – at a meeting of the university council. . Prof Hayne told council members she believed the special edition highlighting the university’s best Maori-oriented research programmes was “unique in the world” and would “create a stir” for its focus on indigenous partnerships. “We developed this booklet as a companion piece to He Kitenga, because we found the depth and breadth of our Maori research warranted its own publication.” The document focuses exclusively on research programmes that are partnered alongside indigenous concerns and matters connected with Maori.
