This course will examine the history of Maori economic development. Students will gain an understanding of recent developments and the factors which have affected Maori engagement with globalisation over the past two hundred years.

In this contemporary, global society, development is one of the most important considerations for Māori and Indigenous Peoples. This course will consider development critically from a range of theories and perspectives. It will canvass the history of Indigenous development, focusing particularly on Māori, Aboriginal and Indigenous American peoples. In doing so, it will examine Māori and Indigenous Peoples engagement with globalisation from first contact to the present day. Special attention will be paid to sector development, in particular the areas of resource management, health and wellbeing, business and education.


Any 30 points at 200 level from HIST or MAOR, or
any 60 points at 200 level from the Schedule V of the BA.
