Māori Vietnam Veterans
2007 - 2008 | Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and Te Atawhai o Te Ao
The project was developed as a result of discussions with Māori Vietnam Veterans living in Whanganui. The project involved the gathering of fourty one Māori Vietnam veterans experiences on film. The interviews were conducted in Kaitāia, Kaikohe, Auckland, Whakatāne, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Palmerston North and Whanganui. Each Veteran spoke for one to two hours about their early life, enlistment, army training, experiences in Vietnam, observations of aerial spraying, combat duties, comradeship, returning home, health of themselves and whānau since returning from Vietnam.
Māori Views and Experiences of Fertility, Reproduction and Art (Assisted Reproductive Technologies)
2006 - 2008 | Health Research Council of New Zealand
Beginning with discussions with whānau, we found that those who had been involved in a range of fertility treatments revealed a lack of information, tikanga Māori and mātauranga Māori in regards to fertility, reproduction and ART (Assisted Reproductive Technologies). Seeing a need to find out more, a project proposal was developed and accepted by the Health Research Council.
