UNDERSTANDING THE TREATY IN 2023 - Network Waitangi Ōtautahi

9.30am - 4.30pm, $70


This workshop will be held at the WEA and run by Network Waitangi Ōtautahi ( ) and starts where people are at. It 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 2023 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) 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 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.
