Publication Date :

This is a book of stories. They are the stories of a group of educational researchers who have addressed the importance of devolving power and control in research and who consider such an approach to be important in order to promote the self-determination (tino Rangatiratanga) of the research participants. The stories tell how the researchers have accepted the challenge of positioning themselves within the discursive practice that is Kaupapa Maori. As a result, the stories examine how such positionings challenge what constitutes a methodological and theoretical framework for research within Maori contexts in Aotearoa-New Zealand today.
