dc.description.abstract This research project grew out of a simple wonderment surrounding the notion of identity. I will explore the formulation of self-identity and the influences that are part of shaping this identity. I am encouraged to discovering other identities of the self namely one's sense of his masculinity. I want to explore aspects of masculinity to gain some understanding of these aspects of self and to provide what this means for some men. Another aspect of discovering one's sense of self, is exploring what it truly means to be Maori more over what it means to be Ngatiawa. I will attempt to discover understandings around tribal identity and the importance that tribal identity may have to Maori let alone the importance that tribal identity has to tribal members today and in the future. I am aiming to explore the sense of tribal identity and the traditional practices that men are engaging in retaining that sense of self. I want to gain some understanding as to how the men perceive the relevance of these actual practices for themselves today. I am aiming to explore the notion of contemporary society and the creation of modernity. How does modem thought influence one's sense of self? Does modern thinking play a part in Maori tradition and therefore what can that look like for men, let alone Maori men? I want to discover the effect of modernist thinking upon the way that Maori men, namely Ngatiawa men see themselves. More over I want to identify the traditional practices that are still being practiced in the process of modernity. Albeit that the focus of this research is to attend to the hypothesis that I have set as the core of my explorations; namely THE TRIBAL MASCULINE IDENTITY OF NGATI AWA MEN IS BEING SUPERSEDED BY THE CONTEMPORARY VALUES AND PRINCIPLES OF TODAY'S SOCIETY. In my research conclusion I will discuss views gained from some Ngatiawa men and how they see their sense of tribal identity in todays context. I will argue these views to the context of the hypothesis that I have set myself. en
