Tuesday 25th and Thursday 27th June, 9.30am - 4.30pm


This 2 day course will be held at the WEA and run by Network Waitangi Ōtautahi ( ). It begins where people are at and is non-confrontational. This opportunity is for those with limited or no knowledge or 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 Workbook of Reflective Readings is provided so note-taking is not necessary. An extensive library is available to peruse during the 2 day course. In addition to the Workbook, the NW Questions & Answers booklet is needed - please download or it can be purchased on the day for $5, along with other resources for $5 & $2 - please bring cash on the day for these. Tea and coffee are 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.
