Kanapu launched Uematarau in 2023 to support grassroots Māori collectives developing their mātauranga Māori-based kaupapa in pūtaiao (science), rangahau (research) or auaha (innovation). Tūhono Rau Tangata – Mātanga talks is one of the Uematarau initiatives. These talks will highlight the leadership journeys of mātanga (specialists) in pūtaiao, rangahau and auaha-related mahi, on national fronts and at home.

Nau mai, mātakitaki mai. Be inspired!
