New Zealand literature review of Māori groupings provides an analysis of contemporary Māori groupings in New Zealand. The urbanisation of Māori has resulted in changes to the ways that traditional social groupings, such as iwi and hapū, are organised and understood, which required investigation into potential implications for defining and measuring Māori identity.
This literature review used a qualitative approach to do this, to allow the words of Māori scholars and theorists to speak for themselves. Statistics New Zealand has no commitment to any perspective outlined in this report.
We thank Maka Angyalova for carrying out the research that led to this report.
