Re-presenting Ourselves: Reasserting Maori Traditional Knowledge
Leonie Pihama, Rihi Te Nana, Ngaropi Cameron, 3pm, Risling Room
This panel discussion will explore a range of sites through which Maori Traditional Knowledge is expressed as a means by which to re-present ourselves as Indigenous nations within Aotearoa (New Zealand).  Matauranga Maori, traditional knowledge, is critical to the revitalization of Maori understandings of healing and well-being.  As we re-present ourselves more fully through our own cultural lens we are able to engage critical issues from our own position as Indigenous Peoples. This includes engaging and speaking back to dominant colonial representations of Maori which continue to advance deficit views and deny the impact of historical trauma upon our whanau (extended families).

Oct 12

Curatorial Walkthrough, 3:30pm
Museum Curator, Veronica Passalacqua will conduct a walkthrough of the exhibition, addressing the artwork on display, the artists, and stories of how the pieces came to be in the C.N. Gorman Museum collections.
