Te Tiriti *by invitation

1 - 3 April, 17 -19 May, 26 - 28 July, 6 - 8 September 2022


To explore the convenantal (kawenata) import of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, including the everyday, practical implications of its mandate and principles for the co-determination of Te Ope Whakaora.

The workshop will include content that engages with the meta-themes of:

  1. WHY is the Treaty of Waitangi important to The Salvation Army?
  2. Reflection on stories of HOW (and WHERE) The Treaty has already been lived and worked out within The Salvation Army.
  3. WHAT the bi-cultural mandate of The Treaty means personally and practically. What can I/we do GOING FORWARD?

Key Outcomes/skills:

  • Grapple with WHY we have a Treaty, including the impact of honouring the Treaty for Māori hauora and societal well-being
  • Understand from WHERE and HOW Te Tiriti shaped relationships are already at play within The Salvation Army (Rūnanga, He waka Eke Noa, Te Ōhākī, Te Whare Tapa Whā etc)
  • Management/Officers/Staff equipped to engage competently with Māori from within tikanga and Te Ao Māori. To extend the cultural proficiency of 'our' centres and people through 'clear pathway(s) toward Te Tiriti shaped relationships
  • A clear distinction between the Three Articles of the Treaty and the Principles of the Treaty
  • A mapping out of 'specific' personal and organisational practices that can be committed to and measured over time
  • Our people resources with links to pou kaumātua and kuia, cultural supervisors within Te Ope Whakaora, and with (online) materials (i.e Dedicated Sharepoint page) that can guide centres, persons into next steps of our relationship with the Treaty
