Te Kuru o te Marama Dewes

Kua tohua ngā toa e rua o te whakataetae DIGMYIDEA mō te tau nei. He tekau mano tāra te wāriu o te kete tautoko kua whakawhiawhia ki ngā toa e rua, kia hāpai ake i ō rātau wawata i te ao pakihi matihiko.

Nā Arena Williams rāua ko Eric Goodard te Rerenga o te Kora i toa, ko tā rāua tautono a 'Kōwhiri', he mea tuku pōti i te reo Māori me te reo Pākehā.

Hei tā Arena Williams, “There's a bit of a weight on our shoulders now, from so many good ideas having come out on top of that process, it just adds to our passion to deliver something that's really good.”

Tekau katoa i eke ki te whiringa toa, kia whakarite i ō rātau tono ki ngā kaiwhakawā. Hei tā Arena Williams kua whai hua rātau i te noho tahi.

“Its people who want to engage with their iwi want to engage in the democratic process but haven't and we got some really good feedback on our idea,” te kī a Williams.

Kua eke ki tōna tau tuatoru, neke atu i te rua rau ngā tono ki te whakataetae. He kaiwhakawā a Kaye-Maree Dunn, hei tāna he tohu pai tērā kei te whanake ngā whakaaro Māori ite ao matihiko.

“There's a real interest in tech and the way that tech can be used to solve the wicked problems of today. I think the opportunities lie in developing capacity at a whānau level and getting more involved in the tech industry,” tā Maree-Dunn.

Ko Jordie Messiter te toa i te Muranga o te Ahi, arā ko tōna whakaaro ko "Homely", he tautono e tūhono ana i te hunga rapa whare ki ngā kairēti.

Ko tāna, “In that process a lot of self-doubt goes on about whether or not the idea is good enough or whether or not  you have the capabilities to follow through with it so being here today and kind of just being given that confidence it's been amazing it's been awesome,” te kī a Messiter.

Hei tā Kaye-Maree Dunn he poipoi i ngā whakaaro auaha a te Māori, he akiaki i ngā whānau, i ngā hapū me ngā iwi whānui anō hoki kia tū ai ngā pakihi matihiko.

“How do we become the architects the designers, the active participants, the owners of that technology, so that we're not just contributing to the Aotearoa economy but the economy of the world as indigenous people,” te kī a Dunn.

Ia tau tū ai te whakataetae nei.
