Introduction to four case studies:
As Māori we are strongly connected to the ocean and to the water. These connections form the fabric of who we are and of our identity. As we age and mature, the nature of our relationship to the water changes as well. In this series of papers, we will share some of our insights and reflections
about being wāhine Māori today and the connections of indigenous identity to the ocean, to water and to the world in general. We are four researchers from Te Koronga, a Māori research excellence kaupapa based at the University of Otago. Tēnei mātou te koronga.
