Indigenous Women Hosted At Waitangi

Sept. 2, 2022, 10:18 a.m.

A new arrangement has been signed between the NZ Government and Canadian Government representative, Minister of Indigenous Services, the Hon Patty Hadju.

Te Kahu o Taonui hosted Minister Nanaia Mahuta in Waitangi, along with the Canadian delegation, for a dinner at Waitangi Treaty Grounds, starting with a powhiri at Te Whare Runanga and a subsequent breakfast for the indigenous women's delegation from Canada the following day.

The indigenous women's delegation travelled with the minister to Aotearoa to share and learn about Māori culture, economics, environment, language revitalisation and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, particularly protections it offers for tangata whenua and the way it has been implemented in the courts.

The breakfast was MC'd by Huhana Lyndon and many of the women were able to share stories about the work they're doing in their relevant sectors.
