We are Auckland's home of commemoration as well as the country’s oldest research institution and a major tourist destination.
Ko te aronga o tēnei tūranga ko te whakawhanaketanga o te Taiwhanga Taiao, ka tapaina ko Toitū Te Taiao, ā, ko tōna tūāpapa ko ngā mātauranga Māori, me ngā whakaaro taketake. Ko tā te Kairauhī ā-Kaupapa, he tuku i ōna mōhiotanga o te mātauranga Māori, inarā, e hāngai ana ki te ao tūroa, te taiao, waihoki te hononga i waenganui i te tangata ki te taiao. Ka riro māna ngā mātauranga Māori e tuitui ki roto i tēnei kaupapa.
Ka mahi ngātahi tēnei tūranga ki te Kaiwhakaputa Auaha me te Kairauhī ā-Kaupapa Natural Sciences ki te hanga kōrero mō te taiwhanga hou e hāngai nui ana ki te pānga mai a te tangata ki te taiao, i ngā wāhi pēnei i Tāmaki Makaurau, i Aotearoa, i te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa hoki.
The focus for this role is the development of the Natural History gallery, Toitū Te Taiao which will be immersed with Mātauranga Māori approaches and indigenous ways of understanding. The Project Curator Mātauranga Māori will provide specialist knowledge in Mātauranga Māori knowledge systems particularly with an interest in the natural world, the environment and the relationship people have with it. This position will lead in weaving Mātauranga Māori perspectives into the content and concept of this space.
This role will work closely with the Creative Producer and Project Curator Natural Sciences in shaping and informing the content for the new gallery with the primary emphasis on the impact humans have had on the environment, specifically Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa and the Pacific.
