Treaty Voyages:Poutūterangi

Whether your organisational Treaty voyage is well underway or you’re still contemplating how to start, this training will provide an opportunity to consider your direction and seek some wise feedback on your organisation’s questions.

A Free Workshop for Kāpiti Community Organisations

Friday 15 March 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM           

Te Newhanga Kāpiti Community Centre, 15 Ngahina Street, Paraparaumu          

This interactive workshop is for staff, managers and leaders of community organisations in Kāpiti.  

The workshop will explore:

  • how can we understand the Treaty of Waitangi and its history in today’s context?
  • how might we apply this understanding to our organisation and the work we do?
  • tikanga and kaupapa Māori perspectives on the Treaty to help your organisation understand Te Tiriti for iwi and hapū in Kāpiti.

To get the most out of this training, we suggest organisations sign up at least with one board member and one staff member (paid or unpaid). Space is limited so reserve your places early.
