The first Mā Te Rae Indigenous Peoples' Conference on Evaluation asks: How does your practice as an indigenous evaluator serve the dreams and aspirations of our indigenous communities? How can we collectively support the growth and acknowledgment of indigenous evaluative theory and practice into the future? This is an indigenous-only conference; however, we've heard that a parallel event for allies may also take place.
