Kōrero on the Intersections of being Māori and Disabled. 

In this panel, kaikōrero Māori will share whakaaro on their journeys of being tangata whaikaha. Colonisation, racism and eugenics are deeply interrelated. Te Ao Māori offers a strengths-based lens on disability, which largely differs from the traditional views of disability in a western world view.

Kaikōrero will reflect on themes including identity, language, and tiriti-based futures from a disability perspective.

Kaikōrero: Tania Bissett, Kiringāua Cassidy, Cha'Nel Kaa-Luke, Te Wainui Witika-Park

Ringa hāpai : Umi Asaka

The kōrero will be NZSL interpreted. On the registration form, please let us know any other access needs you have for participating. A Zoom link will be emailed after registration.

Te Tiriti framework for news media (webinar)

Tāmaki Treaty Workers

 

This webinar will discuss the first framework to apply te Tiriti o Waitangi to the work of news media organisations in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Mass news media in Aotearoa has a history of presenting a colonial view of Māori and te Tiriti. This framework provides questions and suggestions for media workers and organisations to consider how they can report these issues differently.


The authors and presenters are Angela Moewaka Barnes (Te Kapotai, Ngāpuhi-nui-tonu), Belinda Borell (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngai Te Rangi, Whakatōhea), and Jenny Rankine, Tim McCreanor and Raymond Nairn (all Pākehā). They make up Kupu Taea: Media & te Tiriti Project, a research group which has studied how mass and Māori-controlled news media report Māori news and te Tiriti for more than a decade.


The framework was commissioned by Irirangi te Motu for media organisations applying to their Public Interest Journalism Fund.

Tauiwi (non-Māori) and Tiriti Justice: What does constitutional transformation mean in Aotearoa?

Tauiwi mō Matike Mai Aotearoa

 

At the end of treaty education programmes, many tauiwi ask ‘what can we do to finally honour Te Tiriti?’

 

Tauiwi mō Matike Mai Aotearoa (TmMMA) is a space to continue that discussion, inspired by the vision of Matike Mai Aotearoa: The Independent Working Group on Constitutional Transformation. This webinar is an opportunity to explore what a kāwanatanga sphere might look like if it took the Matike Mai values as foundational and what would need to change from the status quo.

About TmMMA: A forum for building the movement of tauiwi (non-Māori) supporting treaty-based constitutional transformation as envisaged by Matike Mai Aotearoa.

Putting Te Tiriti into Practice

Treaty Resource Centre

As the numbers and types of organisations making commitments to honouring Te Tiriti increase, so does our learning about what's involved.  This seminar will provide an overview of different approaches being used, key features of common strategies such as equity, cultural competence, renormalising te reo me ona tikanga, and Maori engagement, and suggestions about specific steps for organisations at the beginning of this journey.

 

The facilitator, Christine Herzog, has been involved in Treaty education since the 1980s, mainly in the health, local government, education and not-for-profit sectors.

Applying Te Tiriti Allyship in Campaigning Work

Kōtare: Research and Education for Social Change 

This is a workshop/discussion on how we Tangata Tiriti can be better allies in the midst of a range of campaigns and keep challenging ourselves about a practical application of Te Tiriti responsibilities. 

Campaigning for justice based change in Aotearoa requires us to address colonisation and Te Tiriti responsibilities in our activism. Allyship is a practice not an identity and we need to examine the issues of mutual liberation and solidarity whatever the focus of our work. Bring your tricky experiences and mistakes to share – we can help each other !

Catherine Delahunty is a Te Tiriti educator, community based campaigner and tutor for Kotare. She is actively involved in Coromandel Watchdog of Hauraki, West Papua National Network and “The Basket – social and environmental justice Hauraki” and more.
