Ka Mua, Ka Muri: A New Transformative Leadership Theory Based on a Prophecy by Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki

  • Byron Rangiwai

Abstract

In this paper, I will argue that for Māori - for whom time is cyclical - looking back and developing leadership models based on the leadership traits and achievements of our ancestors is imperative. Indeed, for Māori, ka mua, ka muri - we walk backwards into the future. This paper will present a new transformative leadership theory based on a prophecy by the Māori prophet Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Tūruki gifted to the Patuheuheu sub-tribe of Aotearoa New Zealand in 1886.
