This website was developed initially alongside Jenny Lee-Morgan and Maryann Lee as a part of sharing Kaupapa Māori resources and articles.  The content relates now to a range of projects being undertaken in collaboration with a number of Māori researchers, scholars, writers, healers and practitioners.  

This provides a space to voice views and approaches in regards to Kaupapa Māori theory, methodology and analysis and to share resources from projects undertaken.

The blog component was developed to sit alongside the voices of the collective of Māori women that make up Te Wharepora Hou. In creating this blog I have shared earlier writings from Te Wharepora Hou, the majority of which I have penned but also those that have been written collaboratively with Mārama Davidson or are press release statements from the collective as a whole.
