The book is centred around the Niho Taniwha model in which both the learner and the teacher move through three phases in the teaching and learning process: Whai, Ako and Mau.

Educational success for Māori students is about more than academic achievement – it includes all aspects of hauora (health and wellbeing). This book demonstrates how to create learning environments that encompass self-esteem, happiness and engagement in Māori language, identity and culture.

While Niho Taniwha presents challenging topics, the book has a practical focus that supports teachers in how to implement the model. Niho Taniwha will challenge and motivate the reader to improve their learning and teaching environment.
