Growing the Puna | Zayden Tane

Zayden Tane (Ngāti Maniapoto, Ngāriki Kaipūtahi)

My project is based around kaupapa kori tinana and kai Māori that Toi Tangata delivers in relation to Te Mārautanga o Aotearoa and the New Zealand Curriculum. The project included a literature review, the two curriculums in Aotearoa/New Zealand, He Pī Ka Rere and Kai Māori. 

When I was writing my project I found that kaupapa kori tinana and kai Māori in primary and secondary schools have improved since I had been in high school back in 2017. When I was a secondary student I had little to no knowledge on the preventable health issues Māori lead in New Zealand, therefore this project aimed at finding the gaps in Te Mārautanga and the Curriculum that can be filled so that tauira today are aware of these issues.
