It’s an important time for all of the public sector to be thinking about how we are engaging with Māori, and what meaningful and effective engagement looks like. The establishment of Te Arawhiti – The Office for Māori Crown Relations, reinforces the government’s commitment to building strong, ongoing and effective relationships with Māori across all of government.
We held this two-day workshop for the first time in Auckland on the 2nd and 3rd of November. Interest outstripped places available, so we will be back in 2021. This workshop is designed to helps public servants gain a greater understanding of Te Ao Māori (Māori world view), Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and provides practical tools and techniques for effectively engaging with Māori.
