Understanding the Treaty in 2019
This workshop will be run by Network Waitangi Otautahi and starts where people are. It is non-confrontational. This is an opportunity to clarify what the Treaty means today and will explore: ancestry, cultural difference and cultural safety; pre-Treaty and post-Treaty history; colonisation and social statistics, and new ways of thinking, living and working. Models and possible actions for moving towards a Treaty-based society will also be considered. A handbook of resources is provided so note-taking is not necessary. In addition to the handouts a booklet titled The Treaty of Waitangi Questions and Answers (2018) will be available to purchase for $5 – please bring cash on the day for this. Tea and Coffee provided but please bring your own lunch. CWEA does not want the fee to this course to be a barrier to anyone who wants to attend, so please feel free to contact the admin staff to discuss possible discounts and scholarships.
