Te Umutaoroa – A Patuheuheu Research Model
This article describes a Māori world view, and contrasts it with a Pākehā world view in order to demonstrate how cultural norms influence the way in which a person views the world. This article will explain the notion of Kaupapa Māori ideology, which is supported by the Māori world view. The Rangihau model, which places the Māori world view at the centre and locates the Pākehā world view on the periphery, will be used here to illustrate Kaupapa Māori ideology. One of the features of the Rangihau model is the cultural notion of whenua, which is used as a portal through which to access a new research model. This model can be used as a methodological basis for research pertaining to Patuheuheu hapū – a subtribe of Ngāi Tūhoe.
