Leading in 21st Century AotearoaNew Zealand requires new paradigms of hautūtanga/leadership that first and foremost considered te ao Māori/a Māori world view and Kaupapa Māori/Māori principles and ideologies.The new reality for non-indigenous leaders is the requirement to address the importance of Pākehā engagement with te ao Māori/the Māori world on Māori terms.

It is only through the adoption of bicultural approaches and bilingual understandings of hautūtanga/leadership that we can hope to cultivate culturally safe environment for all stakeholders.

Fostering biculturalism: exploring principal hautūtanga/leadership in a South Island secondary school in AotearoaNew Zealand.

AotearoaNew Zealand has been home to the indigenous Māori population for approximately one thousand years. As a consequence of British colonisation during the 19th century and the devastating assimilationist policies implemented during the first half of the 20th century, Māori suffered the loss of their native language, confiscation of their tribal lands, and the complete undermining of their ahurea tuakiri/cultural identity as Māori. This study sets out to explore the role educational hautūtanga/leadership could play in addressing the resulting inequalities and disparities that arose from that subjugation of Māori by a dominant colonising force.
