A Critical Pedagogy of Place?: "Te Atiawa" (Maori) and "Pakeha" (Non-Maori) History Teachers' Perspectives on the Teaching of Local, Maori and New Zealand Histories
Manning, Richard F.
Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, v40 p102-111 Jan 2011
This article describes the objectives and methodology of a doctoral research project (Manning, 2008). It then draws upon the key findings of that project to briefly describe how an envisioned critical pedagogy of place partnership model, involving nominated members of the "Te Atiawa iwi" (tribe) and local history teachers, might enhance the quality of history teaching in the Port Nicholson Block area. This area is located in the Wellington district (south-western corner) of New Zealand's North Island. The discussion then explains, in more detail, why obstacles are likely to be encountered by any attempt by "Te Atiawa" and/or the teacher participants to develop such a partnership model. Two related place-based metaphors help draw brief conclusions about how these obstacles relate to the New Zealand government's own (1989) principles for action on the Treaty of Waitangi and recount its obligations to uphold the Articles of the United Nations' (2007) Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
