Field Māori and the arts

New Zealand is the first country in the world to formally recognise indigenous knowledge.

Field Māori contains a wealth of arts-related unit standards and national certificates, many which can be funded under your school’s Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) funding.

Your school may be already accredited to provide some of these:

  • Māori performing arts
  • Ngā mahi a te whare pora (traditional weaving)
  • Mau rākau (taiaha training)
  • Whakairo (carving).

Pasifika arts

While there is no Field Pasifika as such, there are unit standards that will meet the needs of some of your Pasifika students in the arts.
