Sustainability and Biculturalism in New Zealand

This project supports 24 students from MHC to join Otago Polytechnic’s Summer Studies in New Zealand program, with priority to Indigenous students. Students will explore the culture of the Kai Tahu, a Maori tribe and the first people of New Zealand to expand their intercultural awareness, and gain awareness and skills in environmental preservation through coursework and engagement with New Zealand’s natural terrain.

Tailored wrap-around supports will be provided for students, including information and talking circles, a ceremony to support a safe journey for students, a mentorship program, and the accompaniment of a staff member from the Indigenous Support office.
