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



This is stage two as a resource on bicultural society. It contains meetings. Meeting one: A bicultural Aotearoa – to discuss the concept of a bicultural society as one in which two different cultures are actively respected in that society. Meeting two: The Treaty of Waitangi – to understand the Treaty of Waitangi, the commitments made under it, and the way in which these commitments have worked out in practice since 1840. Meeting three: Parihaka 1879-1882. Meeting four: how institutions work – to look more deeply at the institutions of our society, to work out who has power within them, ad to work out who benefits from them. Meeting five: visions of a bicultural society – to have each person consider their own vision of a bicultural society and to consider how this might be achieved.
