Ko Rongomaiwahine, Ngati Kahungunu me Ngati Tuwharetoa oku iwi, e tipu ake ahau ki Mahia.
My Māori nations are Rongomaiwahine, Ngati Kahungunu and Ngati Tuwharetoa and I am raised on my ancestral homeland of Mahia peninsula. My research includes critiquing education from a counter-hegemonic position. Alongside this, I am also interested in Māori young people, race and culture, cultural identity and critical white studies.
I will supervise PhD students who are interested in exploring cognative/social/spatial/temporal injustice in the following areas:
- Māori and indigenous youth
- Culture and indigenous studies
- Counter-hegemonic education
- Knowledge production
- Place—An emphasis is placed on indigenous understandings of place.
