Māori History in the NZ Curriculum

When teachers encourage students to learn about where they live and create opportunities to link their community to significant events, learners start to understand they are part of a larger story, they are a part of history and that they make history every day.

Māori history encompasses the complete history of peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand, from the earliest Polynesian navigators, to those who interacted with English colonists, to the occupiers of land and the settlers of grievances, through to the movers, the shakers, and the everyday people of our communities today.
