Aotearoa New Zealand beyond 1990: Project Waitangi Christchurch – Stage one



This document is for the use of groups wishing to investigate issues of Pakeha culture, racism, and the Treaty of Waitangi. It is divided into five meetings: This document contains: meeting one: Cultural awareness for Pakeha. Objective: to create an awareness of Pakeha culture, its roots and unique characteristics, because if we are to understand the Treaty of Waitangi and racism in our society it helps to understand our own culture. Meeting two: Pakeha culture – to continue from meeting one, looking at Pakeha culture. Meeting three – personal and cultural racism – The treaty of Waitangi was supposed to be a pact between two peoples. Meeting four: How institutions work – The Treaty of Waitangi aimed at partnership between Maori and Pakeha. How do some institutions of our society fail to fulfil this promise?; Meeting five: the Te Atiawa Peoples Claim;
