Mātauranga Māori qualifications and assessment standards

Field Māori gives national recognition to mātauranga Māori. It is one of the classification fields for the Directory of Assessment Standards (DAS) that caters specifically to Māori knowledge, pedagogy, and skills, and enables the portability of Māori skills and knowledge within the national education system.

This image depicts Field Māori. The disciplines, or subfields, within Field Māori are represented by pou (pillars) in the wharenui (meeting house) where knowledge is nurtured. The four cornerstones are Reo Māori (the Māori language), Tikanga (Māori traditions and customs), Ngā mahi a Te Whare Pora (traditional weaving), and Whakairo (traditional carving).
