Manurere Scholarship

Nā te tari o te Tari o te Toi Ahurei me Ngāi Tauira te karahipi Manurere i whakatū kia waingōhia te haere o ngā tauira Māori kei te Tohu Paerua ki ngā wānanga e tū ana ki konei, ki tāwāhi rānei. Tokorima ngā tauira kua whiwhi i te karahipi nei kia pai ai tā rātou whakaatu atu i ā rātou mahi rangahau ki tētahi wānanga, kia haere ake rānei ki te rangahau kōrero mō tētahi wā.

Ko te kaiwhiwhi tuatahi i tēnei karahipi ko Charlie Holland, he tauira Māori nō te Tari Pākehā o te whare wānanga. Ko tāna he whakaatu atu i ōna mōhiohio ki te hui e kīa nei ko Native American Literary Symposium i tū ki Albuquerque. Ko te ingoa o tōna whakaatu-ā-waha ko tēnei, ‘Will Māori Literary Nationalism work in Aotearoa?’ 

I haere hoki a Karena Kelly (he tauira anō kei te tohu paerua) ki te tūtaki i a Tākuta Mary Boyce nō te whare wānanga o Hawaii, he whakawhiti kōrero, whakaaro hoki e pā ana ki te waihanga rautaki whakawhirinaki kupu o te reo Māori. Ā, i haere hoki ia ki te wānanga e tirohia ana ki te haumate haere o ngā reo o te tokoiti.

I kii a Karena “Mei kore ake tā koutou karahipi i tukuna mai, ka pī tonu te noho a tēnei manu.” Ki a ia hoki, “Maringanui i tū ai te International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation ki taua whare wānanga anō i ahau i reira. He kāpunipuni tēnei, he wānanga mō ngā tino toki o te kaupapa whakahou reo. Tokohia kē mai ngā kairangahau o ngā reo taketake huri noa i te ao…Hiamo ana te ngākau ki te whakarongo ki ō rātou whakaaro rangatira mō te kaupapa, mauria mai ai ki te wā kāinga hei rongoā mō ō tātou tini take reo.”

Anō hoki i riro i a Te Atawhai Kumar tētahi o ngā karahipi nei hei āwhina i a ia ki te haere ki te whare wānanga o Queensland ki te whakahinonga i āna rangahau whakatairite. I whakamahia te karahipi i riro i a Erin Keenan (he tauira e mahi ana i tōna tohu kairangi ki te Kura Hītori) mō tētahi haerenga ki Amerika, ki te wānanga e kīa nei ko te, American and Indigenous Studies conference i tū ki te whare wānanga o Minnesota. Ā tōna wā ka haere hoki a Arama Rata (he tauira e mahi ana i tōna tohu kairangi ki te Kura Mātai Hinengaro) ki te whakawaha i ōna mahi rangahau ki te wānanga e kīa nei ko te International Academy for Intercultural Research 6th Biennial Conference ka tū ki Hawaii.

Kua tau kē te kōrero ka tautokohia anō te tari o te PVC Māori me Ngāi Tauira i tēnei kaupapa, nā reira ka puta anō tēnei karahipi kia waingōhia te rere o ngā tauira Māori.
