Lay summary
The proposed research aims to build on results of a previous research project, Whaia Te Ahi Kaa: Ahi Kaa and its role in Oranga by exploring at a deeper level one component of ahi kaa; manaakitanga. We will explore how manaakitanga is being expressed at both whanau and marae levels; the barriers and enhancers for expressions of manaakitanga; and its impact or potential to impact on hauora. The research will use a similar template as the previous project to conduct the research therefore building on existing research practice, deepening the experience of research for this iwi and providing ongoing research capability building opportunities for iwi members. The iwi will use research results for future iwi planning, contribute more broadly to the Maori academy through the production of matauranga Maori and explore the potential of manaakitanga as a vehicle for hauora.
