Nga mihi o te wa ki a koutou katoa.
Te Mana Raraunga is holding a hui to wananga how we should be dealing with data from a Maori worldview. What concepts, values, tikanga and kawa should be informing the way we deal with data use, data ethics, data governance, and data protection. There are a number of data initiatives underway, some led by government, some led by iwi, some led by other organistions that are making use of Maori data and we need to develop ways to ensure culturally safe and appropriate approaches to data sharing and data linkage.
We look forward to seeing you at the hui at the Buttery, Bryant Hall, University of Waikato on Monday 9th July. There is some travel assistance available for community members to attend.
