MAI Journal is an open access journal that publishes multidisciplinary peer-reviewed articles that critically analyse and address indigenous and Pacific issues in the context of Aotearoa New Zealand. MAI Journal publishes two issues per year, the first in May and the second in December. MAI Journal is only published online. We aim to publish scholarly articles that substantively engage with intellectual indigenous scholarship.
This general issue of MAI Journal, Volume 5, Issue 1 (2016) contains six articles on themes including ethnic-specific equity programmes in New Zealand universities, Māori values in the workplace, mental health support for Māori following the Christchurch earthquakes, digital media with Māori-language interfaces, representations of Māori and smoking in media, and discourses around mahinga kai, Māori food-gathering sites and practices.
