This thesis was submitted in 2016, in fulfilment of the requirements for Te Kaurutanga. Te Kaurutanga is unique to Te Wananga o Raukawa. Responsibility for Te Kaurutanga rests with Nga Purutanga Mauri who select and guide candidates through the programme and who confer the degree on behalf of the three founding iwi of the Wananga, Te Ati Awa, Ngati Raukawa and Ngati Toa Rangatira.Like Moths to the Flame: A History of Ngati Raukawa Resistance and Recovery explores the extent to which the unique qualities of Ngati Raukawa thought have survived the encounter with European ideas. It argues that preservation of a distinctive Ngati Raukawa intellectual tradition is crucial to the long term survival of Ngati Raukawa as a people.
