Whereas survival as a people will be happening whencommunities of Māori find the expression of kaupapa uplifting,rewarding and preferredKaupapa and tikanga frameworkKaupapa tuku iho are values inherited from tüpuna Mäori. The processes we follow as part of theimplementation or expression of kaupapa we know as tikanga. In this report we define tikangaas the policies, practices and organisational arrangements associated with the expression ofkaupapa tuku iho.The choice of kaupapa is for the organisation to decide. Te Wänanga o Raukawa, after operating,implicitly and informally, within kaupapa Mäori for 20 years, chose to give more formality tothe process. The selection of the 10 kaupapa emerged from ongoing discussions with kaihautü; 20kaumätua, 21 staff; and with members of Te Manawhakahaere. 22 These are 10 kaupapa tuku ihowe would rather have expressed than not expressed. 23Table 1 - Te Wänanga o Raukawa kaupapa tuku ihoKAUPAPA BRIEF DESCRIPTION 24KaitiakitangaKotahitangaCaring for creation including natural resources, inherited treasures, otherforms of wealth and communities, including Mäori as a peoplePursuing a unity of purpose and direction where all are able and encouragedto contributeManaakitanga Behaviour featuring generosity, care, respect and reciprocity toward others 25PükengatangaRangatiratangaWhanaungatangaWhakapapaWairuatangaProcessing knowledge creation, dissemination and maintenance that leads toscholarship and contributes to the mätaurangs (knowledge) continuum of MäoriReflecting chiefly attributes, seen as “walking the talk”, integrity, humilityand honestyExpressing relationships built on common ancestry and featuringinterdependence, reciprocal obligations, support and guidance within röpütuku iho 26The inter-relationships of all living things by virtue of descent fromPapatüanuku and Ranginui.The recognition of the intimate spiritual connections that link atua,humankind and nature in the past, present and future.20 Academic and administrative directors.21 Elders who are known for their scholarship.22 Council of Te Wänanga o Raukawa.23 A value is something one would ratherhave than not have.24 Prepared by Pakake Winiata, Te Wänanga oRaukawa.25 Petrie, Hazel, (2003) Chiefs of Industry,p176.26 Whakapapa based entities, whänau, hapüand iwi.Te reoÜkaipötangaThe acknowledgement that the preservation of te reo is crucial to our survivalas Mäori; the responsibility to ensure the transmission of te reo to futuregenerations.The importance of türangawaewae, a place where one belongs, feels valuedand is able to contribute.The choice was made from the many kaupapa derived from the Mäori worldview as it evolvedduring the millennium of isolation; and when Mäori survived and flourished – a worldview thatwas pure and unspoiled by the thoughts and ideas of others.
