Hawaii, New Zealand universities form partnerships

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii at Manoa is forming partnerships in indigenous research with two New Zealand universities.

The partnerships with the University of Auckland and Massey University aim to uplift the mana, or spiritual power, and aspirations of indigenous peoples.

The University of Hawaii at Manoa said Wednesday the partnerships have already been fruitful.

The UH medical school and a network from the University of Auckland won a five-year grant from the U.S. National Institutes of Health that will allow students to experience three months of health research training in New Zealand.

Native Hawaiian Health Department Chairman Keaweaimoku Kaholokula says the grant will allow the school to help indigenous undergraduate and graduate students to become biomedical and behavioral scientists.
