Mātauranga Māori is increasingly prioritised and elevated through government policies, funding requirements and criteria and the prevalence of Te Ao Māori perspectives and being recognised and valued. This presents a range of advantages and challenges for mātauranga Māori as a knowledge system on par with other knowledge systems and ways of knowing. In this presentation, Dr Sciascia will draw on a number of recent projects from the climate change, National Science Challenge and Māori Agribusiness contexts in understanding the role of mātauranga Māori alongside scientific knowledge and the tensions that are presented.
