Tiriti-based futures + Anti-racism 2020 is an innovative (inter)national, online and offline, Tiriti-based, anti-racism and decolonisation event in Aotearoa.
It will start with a one-day hui March 21, Race Relations Day 2020, hosted by Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua in Tāmaki Makaurau, and run for 10 days. Webinar topics include institutional racism and anti-racism, decolonisation, building Tiriti-based futures and transforming our constitution. Overseas presenters will also discuss lessons for Aotearoa from their experiences with these issues. The open-access webinars will be posted on-line, where they will become permanent resources for anti-racist activism and Tiriti education.
TBF2020 also includes face-to-face events in multiple locations, these will include Tiriti workshops, train-the-Tiriti-trainer hui, public talks, webinar viewing and discussions and community pot luck dinners. New anti-racism and Tiriti resources, both printed and online, will gradually be added to the site.
The organisers are a group of Pākehā and Māori with experience in activism, research and community development. With your help, we hope that Te Tiriti Based Futures + Anti-Racism 2020 will become an annual event.
This initiative is a response to a challenge from Māori wanting increased education efforts around decolonisation. The event is based on community Tiriti education principles, pedagogies and on-going reflections. It accepts te Tiriti o Waitangi as the primary text, and places it in the context of He Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nū Tīrene. We acknowledge and maintain that hapū in Aotearoa never ceded tino rangatiratanga.
