Effective Engagement with Maori

The way government engages with Māori is changing. Future engagement is going to be different from what we have traditionally seen/experienced. The establishment of Te Arawhiti – The Office for Māori Crown Relations, demonstrates the governments’ commitment to build strong, ongoing and effective relationships with Māori across all of government. Engagement will go beyond consultation to true partnership.

This two-day workshop is designed to help 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.

Day one of the workshop has participants building a foundation of historical and cultural knowledge. Day two, has participants using this knowledge to inform their planning for consultation and engagement with Māori.

Te Reo (Māori language) and Tikanga (Māori protocols) will be weaved through the workshop across the two days.

This introductory workshop is designed for public servants who want to build their knowledge and confidence for working in partnership with Māori.
