The Tū Mai: Rongoā Māori Symposium reflects a pivotal time in the recognition of the mana of Rongoā Māori by the health and disability sector in Aotearoa. This Symposium was inspired through working with the Rongoā Māori community as part of a Health Research Council-funded project, Te Ao Rauropi: Mapping the Biosphere of Rongoā Māori.
The Ministry of Health, Accident Compensation Corporation, the interim Māori Health Authority, Whakauae Research Services and Rongoā communities have partnered to host this Symposium. Current perspectives on the place of Rongoā as a taonga tuku iho in our collective commitment to improve health equity for all New Zealanders will be shared.
