An Intergenerational Celebration of Taonga
Expression of Interest
Kia hiwa rā! Kia hiwa rā!
There are two exciting opportunities available for roles aligned to the fund intended to empower iwi Māori as kaitiaki of their taonga and promote succession planning for the small pool of Māori conservators who work directly with iwi, hapū and marae.
We are looking for two kaimahi that have experience working with iwi, and exceptional communication and organisation ability to fill the roles.
Te Awe Kōtuku Manu Kārearea
Knowledge of te ao Māori is required for these roles as you will be working directly with iwi, hapū and whānau, including museum practitioners to support the closing of the Ko Rongowhakaata exhibition, and the return of taonga to Tūranga and respective institutions.
This initiative is part of the Te Awe Kōtuku Mātauranga Māori fund and is intended to empower iwi Māori as kaitiaki of their taonga and to promote succession planning for the small pool of Māori conservators who work directly with iwi, hapū and marae.
Ko te āhua e whai hua ai te tūranga
This is a special opportunity for uri of Rongowhakaata iwi (Wellington and / or Tūranga based) to work alongside Rongowhakaata whanau and to gain knowledge in conservation, handling of taonga in museums and learning about managing taonga Māori in a museum environment.
The Manu Kārearea will help to develop administrative systems to support the closing of the iwi exhibition and the return of taonga, along with providing relationship support in liaising with Rongowhakaata Iwi Trust, Te Papa museum staff and lending institutions.
Ka kawea e koe te aha
Both roles are scheduled between early December 2021 and end of April 2022.
