The Symposium will address three key themes:

1. Encouraging Tai Tokerau Māori to vote 2. Encouraging Tai Tokerau Māori to stand in local body elections 3. Exploring models of representation for Māori in local government to gain shared experiences and successes from other regions and pathways for systemic change
