Chief, Land, and Family

  • William Kainana Cuthers


This article will demonstrate how the 'mana model' enhances mātauranga (Cuthers, 2018). I will critically discuss three principles that guide my practice; chief, land and family. I will discuss and compare relevant work from three sources on each of these principles that underlie my practice. In this article, I will utilise autoethnography and discuss the story of my tupuna to encourage others to embrace their identity and enhance their mana. In researching aspects of my history and mātauranga that are directly linked to my whakapapa, I am hereditarily entangled in this literature (Rangiwai, 2018).
