What intergenerational insights can be gleaned about Pākehā roles and responsibilities in te Tiriti o Waitangi and antiracism education? This panel discusses the roles, contributions and pitfalls of Pākehā Te Tiriti education and antiracism in a colonised country. Drawing on the experiences of three generations of Pākehā actively working with other Pākehā to honour te Tiriti, the participants will explore how power dynamics, tensions and changes within Pākehā te Tiriti education and activism work over three generations. With over 100 years of combined experience, the discussion aims to identify key lessons about Pākehā te Tiriti education and anti-racism historically, presently and into the future.
