Ko te Ako te ara Ko te moohiotanga te rama This research is a case study of Maori tertiary education sector. It focuses on Te Waananga-O-Aotearoa, the largest Maori waananga in New Zealand. Our research philosophy, ?Breaking Boundaries? involves an appreciative inquiry of Maori organisations that continue to break boundaries while operating in a culturally deficient business environment. We are looking, in an appreciative way, at a waananga from within, giving what we called in ?Tumatanui? the inside view of a waananga. We are looking for the spirit of the place, the things that make it different and successful. For this we are eternally grateful to our knowledge carriers who came forth with their stories which you will find enlightening. We are also grateful for their support and dedication to the waananga and its students of many cultures. Learning is the path Knowledge is the light
