Commitment to a Treaty-based Multicultural New Zealand

Commitment to a Treaty-based Multicultural New Zealand

Te Tiriti o Waitangi is often been mistakenly considered to only be relevant to Māori and to Pākehā New Zealanders whose ancestors have been in New Zealand for some time. Te Tiriti however established the terms and conditions of all non-Māori settlement so therefore is relevant to all New Zealanders.

Network Waitangi ōtautahi has been working with the Federation of Multicultural Councils as they have developed a new resource about their commitment to a Treaty-based multicultural future. This new resource is shared so that others can develop their own statements.

The resource is available on both the Federation of Multicultural Councils and Network Waitangi ōtautahi websites.

 

Network Waitangi ōtautahi has particular emphasis on encouraging those who do not have Māori ancestry to understand the Treaty of Waitangi.
