Guided Introductory Learning

 

Welcome! This section will act as a knowledge bank for introductory self-study via resources from various organizations and publishers. Each section shows related sub-topics and has a guided reflection with a link to the Haumana Hub. Remember that ‘Ōiwi Online is not a school but is intended to help learners become comfortable and more ma‘a to cultural subject matter. We always encourage deeper exploration and learning from multiple sources and kumu.
