Māori Data Sovereignty for whānau transformation

Māori Data Sovereignty for whānau transformation

Tino Rangatiratanga or sovereignty is at the heart of Māori, iwi, hapū and whānau development aspirations. In the current environment, Māori need to make informed development decisions using robust evidence to maximise the potential of the limited resources that we have, and to provide innovative benefits and opportunities to enable whānau transformation.

Data is a key strategic asset for Māori development and having greater access, control, governance and being able to better use data that is relevant to whānau Māori is fundamental for measuring towards our own aspirations. Kirikowhai will share an overview of the emerging kaupapa of Māori Data Sovereignty, with the synergies between this and the important mahi of Whānau Ora for whānau transformation.
