Te Kotahi Research Institute

Te Kotahi Research Institute (TKRI) was established by Te Rōpū Manukura, a unique advisory body representing iwi within the University of Waikato (UOW) region. TKRI supports the work of the DVC Māori (UOW) to support iwi research aspirations and develop research capacity amongst Māori staff and students while realising the research needs and aspirations of iwi not only within the University catchment area, but for iwi across Aotearoa. It brings together scholars from across disciplines to undertake research through its extensive networks both nationally and internationally. This interdisciplinarity acknowledges the diverse nature of Māori research and the strong basis in kaupapa Māori research requiring collaboration with whānau, hapū, iwi and Māori communities. TKRI draws inspiration from Sir Robert Te Kotahi Mahuta, the founding Director of the Centre of Māori Studies Research and from whom the Institute derives its name.
