Lay summary

This Rangahau Hauora application comprises two complementary components: a) a
substantive research component; and b) a more general Maori health research capacity
building component.
The first component is a study that will explore tangihanga from a Ngai Tai perspective,
focusing on the ways in which values, beliefs and practices are expressed. A multi-methods
approach including a review of the relevant literature, two focus groups, five key informant
interviews and a thematic analysis of the data will be undertaken. Project outcomes will
include capturing Ngai Tai tangihanga tikanga, in both traditional and contemporary times,
and will aim to contribute to the transmission of this cultural knowledge to support the
wellbeing of Ngai Tai whanau, Torere Marae and the greater iwi collective.
The second component aims to provide an opportunity for the applicant to gain research
experience that will strengthen their practice and knowledge base as a future Ngai Tai
leader.
