#CONGRATULATIONS to Māori philosopher Associate Professor Krushil Watene has been appointed to the UN Human Development Advisory Board. Dr Watene says “the voices and values of Indigenous peoples have much to contribute in finding solutions to environmental catastrophe – and we can no longer afford to overlook and ignore them.” TTW agree, which is the foundation of the work we do. 🙂

#CONGRATULATIONS to Dr Rangi Matamua who was recently named NZ’s top science communicator – recognition for two decades of work focussing on Māori astronomy, including teaching Matariki. Matamua says there is empirical science in mātauranga Māori, which is much more than scientific practice. Merging mātauranga Māori with modern scientific practice is the focus of our work at TTW, which does not come without its own challenges. In this article, Dr Matamua talks of his experiences in getting where he is today. #TTW #māorivoice #mātauranga #matariki
