1. Curle, Shayna-Lucy. Cultural Magnitude: Interactive visual mapping - A hybrid network for indigenous data.

Degree: 2017, Victoria University of Wellington

This research has been undertaken in response to the limitations of standard mapping techniques, in particular, those that use ESRI-based technology and delivery. The work argues that our ability to understand the complex nature of indigenous ontologies and spatial models are affected by the available tools and their ontological frameworks. It sets out to visualise, in a tool, traditionally non-physical, but inherently spatial, data and information. The map, in a traditional sense, now becomes a fluid, open, self-referential virtual topography or ‘space’, challenging the rational top-down fixity of western cartographic representation. As an architectural thesis, it seeks to create holistically structured space as a virtual edifice and is concerned with that which is not represented and concludes that the most important aspect of creating a mapping framework for an indigenous ontology is to understand the inseparable relationship between people, knowledge and land. The research describes a tool designed and built by the author that contributes to cultural and spiritual health (whai ora) and wellbeing of Māori. Through its ontological framework, it aims to provide an alternate map that enables users to navigate and share cultural knowledge. The central concept is to ‘re-connect’, in particular, urban and disenfranchised Māori, through the creation of a virtual space that can be customised and inhabited in various ways by its users. It questions and challenges what is included and what is excluded, what can be represented, asking where might culture have a ‘place’? How might people and their environments effect change in themselves? In others? Cultural Magnitude is the exploration of the development of a tool that acts as a digital representation and storage place of whakapapa and taonga, and as a cultural resource for Māori to understand their spiritual bounds to physical locations - a tangible foundation for a digital marae. Advisors/Committee Members: Kawiti, Derek, Sweet, Kevin.

2. Grbic, Victor. Virtualising the stories of Ngākau Māhaki mā te whare e arahi : let the whare be the guide.

Degree: 2016, Unitec New Zealand

This research investigated how mātauranga Māori, recorded histories and events associated with Unitec’s Te Noho Kotahitanga marae can be shared within a digital space. To this end, I developed a model digital repository Te Rua, which demonstrates the potential to meet the needs of Unitec’s diverse and changing learning community, while upholding the cultural integrity of Māori partners. Kaupapa Māori approaches frame the research and because of this Māori knowledge and interests in the repository project are privileged. Kaupapa Māori has also supported a robust, iterative and collaborative research practice that allowed me to establish effective engagement and participation with potential repository partners. Together, we have explored the scope of our experiences, approaches, concerns and aspirations for the project. The construction of Te Rua focused on the preferred forms of audience engagement with mātauranga Māori. My Māori research partners’ recommendations are supported by my research into current digital media platforms and tools associated with indigenous content and cultural heritage projects. As a supplement to the modeled repository Te Rua, this research project has produced a set of guidelines for the design of a more permanent digital repository. The guidelines charge institutions such as Unitec with the responsibility of upholding the taonga status of mātauranga Māori. The guidelines also reflect the overarching design goal of an online repository that ensures audience access and engagement is positively encouraged and aligns with the tikanga of the marae. Key questions I explored within this project are: what are the implications for storing taonga and mātauranga Māori within digital spaces; what are the cultural practices, values and concerns that guide the research; and how might Māori processes of engagement with and on marae be transposed to a digital space? I conclude that taonga and mātauranga Māori can be successfully transposed to digital spaces when Māori partners and content owners have an ongoing role in the design process to ensure audience access and engagement with taonga aligns with tikanga Māori. Advisors/Committee Members: Unitec Institute of Technology.
