  Abstract The relationship between Maori people and Pakeha psychologists has been one of inequality in which Maori, often positioned as client or student, have been abnormalised through the wholesale application of foreign psychological models and theories. Pakeha psychologists by and large have closed ranks to disguise the essentially racist nature of their discipline and, of the practises which arise from it. This is evident in their failure to challenge in real terms, the cultural biases in their knowledge and practices and, the politically motivated and inspired agendas of their discipline. Given this, Pakeha psychology may be understood as part of the mechanics of colonization and neocolonialism. Challenges from inside the discipline have produced minor changes to the recruitment and training of Maori psychology students and staff, and, rhetorical statements about ethical commitments to Maori people based on the Treaty of Waitangi, however, the talk has been far more prolific than the walk-In the attempt to develop a Maori and psychology course, the first of its kind in a New Zealand university, questionnaires seeking comment on the content and process of such a course were administered to forty four undergraduate Maori psychology students from the University of Waikato. The respondents identified Pakeha psychology as monocultural and provided this as a rationale for the development of Maori psychology. Other major themes included the contemporary position of Maori, the interface between Pakeha psychology and Maori, Pakeha psychology and colonization and the Treaty of Waitangi.
