Over the past two years, our small team of tau iwi librarians has been engaging with our University of Otago's Māori Strategic Framework, so we can better support our Māori students as they learn and research across the University.

As part of this mahi, we gathered as a team this Matariki. We spoke about Puaki Matariki (as we celebrate it in Ōtepoti | Dunedin), and said a kaikōhau together both in Te Reo Māori and in a variety of our ancestral languages. We also launched a resource guide to support the team on their continuing journey, and then shared a kai together.

A big mihi to our Māori colleagues in the Library and the wider University for their support and kōrero on the journey, and to our executive manager who has been incredibly supportive of the mahi.

What an awesome way to mark te tau hou! #kaitahi #kaikohau

Manawatia Matariki!
