Nga Tauira Maori is the official Maori Student Association of the University of Auckland. We uplift and support Maori students in endeavoring towards all the pathways they aspire to. We seek to preserve and develop the use of tikanga and Te Reo Maori within the University and the tauira. We strive to support Maori students in their formal education as well as in an awareness and understanding of their surrounding world. We aim to inspire our tauira to influence their environments through an understanding of who they are as tangata whenua.
