Abstract

Refers to previous research on issues of culture and ethnicity in education and accounting and outlines the history of the Maori of New Zealand following colonization with particular reference to cultural, economic and educational problems. Presents a study of Maori participation and experience at a university which, despite special commitment to meeting their needs, shows less than proportionate enrolments/completions. Quotes extensively from interviews with Maori students to illustrate their perceived problems and reactions to efforts to support them; and relates these themes to other research on the contrasts between Maori culture and Western accounting. Supports the idea of achieving greater Maori influence in the current system rather than separate Maori education, considers how this could work in practice and suggests that it could enrich accounting education for all students.
