This session is a power point presentation titled Māori experiences of historical intergenerational trauma and transformative pedagogies stems from my PhD thesis that has the same title of which I am currently completing at Te Whare Wānanga o Awanui-ā-rangi. The theoretical underpinnings behind this presentation also stems from my professional position as a lecturer educator at the Waikato Institute of Technology. I currently teach on the Bachelor of Applied Social Science degree specializing in Te Whiuwhiu o te Hau Māori counselling. Parts of our underlying philosophies include Indigenous liberation and cultural action for social change.

These philosophies drove me to research and respond to dominant perceptions regarding deficit statistics for Maori in education, health, unemployment, poverty, alcohol, drugs and other disparaging trends.

The first aspect explores historical legislative violations stemming from the Te Tiriti o Waitangi 1840. The second aspect superimposes those legislative violations over Māori whānau covering four generations back to 1840 to ascertain intergenerational impacts. The third aspect discusses ramifications of those impacts across generations.
The final aspect introduces He Kakano Ahau; a Māori counselling framework that has compiled models established by other Māori academic theorists for the purpose of responding to historical intergenerational trauma.
