Dear University of Auckland,

I request under the Official Information Act under what branch of science does the University of Auckland consider that Mātauranga Māori is a science.

Additionally I request under the Official Information Act does the University consider 'Mātauranga Māori', 'Christian Science', 'Western science', 'homeopathy' or 'Creationism' as being actual forms of science.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Liz,

 

I refer to your official information request dated 31 July 2021. The
Official Information Act enables people to request official information
from agencies, but it does not require agencies to create official
information, which includes requests to form views on matters of interest
to a requester. Accordingly your request is refused under section 18(g) of
the Official Information Act, as the information requested is not held by
the University.

 

You have the right to make a complaint to an Ombudsman if you are
dissatisfied with this response.

 

Yours sincerely,

Rebecca Ewert

General Counsel

University of Auckland
