Description


A Vision for Indigenous Evaluation: A framework for increasing participation and control by Indigenous peoples 


Community Research webinars are live events, linking up community sector professionals from multiple locations to share their expertise, and to share evidence of what’s working. This 60-minute, interactive ‘seminar at your desk’ will take place on Google Hangouts on Air.  Places are free of charge. There will be opportunities to ask questions of the presenters as we go.


About this event

As community sector professionals, we all need to ensure that our consultation and engagement can express Māori values.

In this 60-minute webinar, experienced evaluator Nan Wehipeihana (Ngāti Tukorehe, Ngāti Porou, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui) and Dr Chelsea Grootveld (Ngai Tai, Ngāti Porou, Te Whānau ā Apanui, Te Whakatōhea, Te Arawa) will present a simple but powerful framework, showing:

  • How consultation, evaluation and research can express Māori values
  • The difference between evaluating for Māori, and evaluating as Māori
  • The 'lightbulb moment' on cultural paradigms
  • Real-life examples of why and how you can get this right, and the cost of getting it wrong

Nan will share a tool for ensuring effective consultation, providing a rationale and background for why the approach is 'not just good but necessary'.


Who is this webinar for?


This webinar is for all community sector professionals working in New Zealand, and will be of particular interest to those working in research, partnerships and community.

By the end of this presentation participants will:

  • Have an understanding of the principles of evaluation and research by, for and as indigenous peoples
  • Learn a model of appropriate engagement for Māori
  • Know why this is important for Māori, and for good outcomes
  • Have an appreciation for cultural paradigms in evaluation and research

This is not only pertinent to social research, but any programme that will impact upon Māori values, wahi tapu and taonga.
