Launch of Intergenerational Intimacies: A whakapapa conceptualisation of kai

At the Toi Tangata Hui ā Tau in January held in Otepoti, our Kai Māori Kai Ora Kaiārahi, Haylee Koroi, presented the paper ‘Intergenerational Intimacies: A whakapapa conceptualisation of kai’ co-written by her and lead author, Hana Burgess with visual storytelling by Sonya Milford and Hāmiora Bailey.

This paper is the culmination of both of their work in the space of kaupapa Māori research, public health, kai, climate change, Indigenous education and community building.

“We write this paper primarily for Māori thinking through kai and Māori health, as well as food sovereignty. We write this paper for our relations making sense of our collective pasts, presence, and futures beyond settler colonialism.”

This work was supported by Toi Tangata and the Deep South National Science Challenge.
