Event description

Description

Dr. Patu Patrick Wahanga Hohepa is a linguist and cultural anthropologist whose research on Māori language and expression commences with his ancestral ties to the land. Dr. Hohepa brings research and insights with respect to Māori and Polynesian languages, Indigenous languages, revitalization and survivance, as well as to Maori relationships with water, including geothermal and freshwater. Dr. Hohepa’s work has been as a leading elder (rangatira), a researcher, and a writer, as one of the organizers for Treaty Claims of Ngāpuhi, the largest confederation of tribes of Maori New Zealand comprising 157,000 of the 700,000 Maori in the country. Over eighty years’ lived experience of Maori-Crown relations informs his research concerning the sovereignty of Maori in Northland, Aotearoa New Zealand, and treaty relationships with the Crown.
