Māori flourishing in a fast changing world
A strong sense of who one is and that one’s life matters is vital to health and wellbeing. This is a key theme of November's inaugural professorial lecture by Professor Linda Waimarie Nikora of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences.

Without meaning and belonging, many people, families and communities lie open to the risk of mental illness, addiction, transience, criminality, suicide and so on.

Surveying almost 30 years of research, Professor Nikora will examine some of these unwellness forces in her lecture and the responses Māori make within the broader quest to remain indigenous and to flourish.

Of Tuhoe and Te Aitanga a Hauiti descent, Linda Waimarie Nikora is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Waikato. Her training is primarily in social, community, cross-cultural, ethno and indigenous psychology.
