MASS Logo

The Māori Association of Social Science logo is representative of Ngā Kete Wānanga (the three baskets of knowledge), which Tāne retrieved from Ngā Rangi-Tūhāhā (the heavens). Each part of the rāranga represents the contribution of many parties to form a co-operative knowledge base which is MASS and their pursuit of a positive difference for Māori. Emma Gardiner is the artist and she affiliates to Ngāruahine Rangi (Okahu hapū), Ngāti Ruanui (Araukuku hapū).
