Nga Pumanawa e Waru's inaugural education conference has started with acclaimed scholar Sir Mason Durie leading a discussion on iwi involvement in education.

Sir Mason touched on the contributions iwi have made to education in the last 200 years, as well as what educational opportunities for rangitahi (youth) and iwi could look like in the future.

Sir Mason was then joined by a panel of experts, Lady Arohia Durie, Associate Professor Mere Berryman and Professor Angus Macfarlane, who each spoke before opening the session up to questions.

The next session is being led by Dr Vikram Murthy on 'Leadership & a Futures Focus'.
