9.30am - 4.30pm, $70


This 2-day course will be held at the WEA and run by Network Waitangi Ōtautahi ( ). It starts where people are at and is non-confrontational. This opportunity is not only introductory; it is designed to refresh your understanding and clarify what the Treaty means today.

It 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 in 2024 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 (2019) @$5 and other resources @$2 are available to purchase - please bring cash on the day for this. Tea and coffee provided but please bring your own lunch.

CWEA does not want the fee for 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.
