Te Ira Tangata: sexuality education programme for Kura Kaupapa Māori

June 29, 2018 at 1:17 PM

From the NZFVC

A te reo Māori resource guide for a kaupapa Māori sexuality education programme has been developed by Te Whāriki Takapo.

Te Ira Tangata is a sexuality education programme for students at total immersion Kura Kaupapa Māori schools. The programme involves eight sessions in Years 7 and 8 students. The programme "... draws upon mātauranga Māori [Māori knowledge] understandings of te pūhuruhurutanga [puberty] and te tuakiri o te tamaiti [children or young's peoples identity]".

The programme resource guide outlines the content for each of the eight weeks including activities. The guide includes links to freely available electronic resources to support kura and kaiako (teachers) to deliver the programme.

Te Whāriki Takapo worked alongside kaiako (teachers), whānau, and Māori community experts to design, teach and evaluate the programme. The programme is available to download for free. Teachers are encouraged to customise the programme so that it meets local requirement.

The Project Leader is Dr Joeliee Seed-Pihama (Te Atiawa, Taranaki). For questions or comments contact

Te Whāriki Takapou provides Māori sexual and reproductive health promotion and research services. Other resources available from Te Whāriki Takapo include:
