Kua tawhiti kē thaere mai, kai kore e haere tonu.
He nui rawa ō mahi, kia kore e mahi tonu.
You have come too far not to go further, you have done
too much not to do more – Ta Himi Henare
Organised by Public Health Association Auckland Branch
Te Tiriti o Waitangi is the foundation of health promotion and public health practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. We talk about te Tiriti a lot, but we aren’t always clear about how to apply te Tiriti.
This workshop informed by the new book Te Tiriti o Waita ngi – Based Practice in Health Promotion, and led by two of its authors, will be a reintroduction to te Tiriti; engaging the head, the heart and wairua.

Workshop includes

  • Tiriti revision to ensure a shared base-line understanding.
  • A practical working bee focussed on Tiriti application.
  • How to work with te Tiriti in a way that is mana-enhancing.
  • Explore the importance of relationships
  • Share ideas around working with kāwanatanga, tino rangatiratanga, ōritetanga and wairuatanga.
