Increasing Maori success in education and sport by drawing on Maori values, cultural world views, and customs was the premise for Meihana Durie’s thesis. Consultation with tribal experts, in-depth observations of cultural applications in modern times, and three case studies involving tertiary education within a Maori context, Maori immersion education, and excellence in sport and secondary education, informed the thesis. Mr Durie showed that performance was enhanced by the inclusion of cultural protocols - kawa – in the day to day operations of modern organisations and that kawa can continue to be adapted to meet changing Maori needs. His research has important implications for Maori achievement across a range of ages, endeavours, and situations. Ko te tuapapa o tenei kaupapa rangahau na Meihana Durie, ko te tiki atu i nga matapono, aronga, tikanga hoki a te Maori kia ahei ai te whakatutuki i nga taumata whakatiketike o te ao matauranga me te ao hakinakina hoki. He pukenga matauranga koia i whai wahi mai ai o ratou na reo ki roto ki tenei kaupapa. I ata tirohia hoki nga huihuinga tangata kia marama ai te titiro a te hunga kaumatua ki nga putake tikanga tuku iho. E toru ano nga kaupapa matauranga i ata whakamaramahia: he whare wananga; he kohanga reo / kura kaupapa Maori; he kura matauranga / hakinakina hoki. Ko te ngako o te hua e ata marama mai ana, ko te aheinga o tenei hanga ko te kawa kia eke taumata ai te tini tangata i roto i nga kaupapa Maori huhua atu o te ao hou. He panga nui ano kei tenei rangahau ki nga reanga katoa e whakapiki taumata ata, i te whanuitanga o nga whainga, tumanako, wawata hoki.
