Te Tiriti holds the potential to shape and inspire an Aotearoa where Māori and non-Māori partner together to enhance the mana of our people and place.


However since the signing of Te Tiriti, it has been ignored and denied by successive governments and largely misunderstood by most New Zealanders. Now, we are seeing a powerful shift, reinforced by movements all around the world for equity, justice and more unified communities.

There has never been more voices across business, community and government calling for Te Tiriti to shape the future of our nation. So how do we all play a meaningful role in a cultural movement that respects indigenous aspirations for self-determination and creating an equitable and inclusive Aotearoa? This workshop covers the following key topics.

History & Context

  • History and context for Te Tiriti
  • Cultural concepts that inform a Māori view of Te Tiriti (tino rangatiratanga, mana, taonga etc)
  • What Te Tiriti says and what it envisaged
  • Impacts of Colonisation and how breaches of Te Tiriti cause present challenges

Honouring Te Tiriti

  • Te ao Māori principles and perspectives that inform how Te Tiriti can advance Māori cultural and social aspiration.
  • Movements happening within community, business and government to honour Te Tiriti
  • Case studies on how to develop a Te Tiriti strategy for your organisation
  • Contemporary challenges and examples of solutions
  • The role of te reo Māori and tikanga Māori in upholding Māori cultural perspectives into the future of Aotearoa.

Join us as we explore the power and potential of Te Tiriti in a safe place, full of aroha and manaaki for all people to come together and wānanga (learn and discuss) together.
