This paper is a culmination of common understandings that were elicited from two pieces of research: 'The Impact of the BHP New Zealand Steel Mining on the Tangata Whenua and the Environment' and 'The Impact of Māori Medium Education within a Mainstream Secondary School on the Lives of its Participants, in particular the Teachers, Caregivers and Students'. It was at the conclusion of each research project and as a consequence of informal conversations and discussions that this paper evolved. The paper discusses shared understandings in the context of Kaupapa Māori research methodology and key findings from the two research projects.
