Te Atawhai o Te Ao is an independent Māori research institute for environment and health. Our purpose is to be a community-led, globally recognised, indigenous research institute that generates and rediscovers knowledge focused on health and environment for the benefit of our people. Based in Whanganui, we whakapapa to our immediate environs, but embrace uri of all iwi and nations. We acknowledge the national and metaphysical identity markers that define our people and place.
