Te Tiriti o Waitangi Archive
Te Tiriti o Waitangi and constitutional change - by Catherine Delahunty
In the two weeks leading up to Waitangi two public forums were held at Te Papa on Te Tiriti o Waitangi and constitutional change. They were excellent contributions to the national conversation, the first being lawyers Moana Jackson (Ngati Kahungungu and Ngati Porou) and Matthew Palmer. Both speakers had a deep understanding of the issues [...] read moreFebruary 4, 2013 9:45 am - 27 Comments
My Citizenship Amendment Bill - by Catherine Delahunty
Last week I placed a Bill in the Members’ Ballot which is aimed at ensuring citizenship ceremonies inform new citizens about Te Tiriti o Waitangi. The Bill came about because some individuals contacted me saying they had participated in some of these ceremonies and were horrified to find no reference to Te Tiriti o Waitangi [...] read moreOctober 23, 2012 10:33 am - 4 Comments
Cross-party support for Te Reo in schools? - by Catherine Delahunty
It’s high time we all worked together and supported our national languages in schools starting with Te Reo Maori. I agree with Tim Groser that learning Te Reo should be available to all children and it’s great to hear the message from an unexpected quarter. The earlier children learn languages, the better. And as Tim [...] read moreApril 30, 2012 12:47 pm - 72 Comments
Beware “the racial bogeyman!” - by David Clendon
The editorial in this week’s NBR puts an ill-informed boot into Maoridom in a manner that would bring joy to Don Brash – in fact for all I know he may have written it! Under the guise of assessing the membership of the recently appointed constitutional advisory panel, the extraordinary excursion into purple prose seeks [...] read moreAugust 12, 2011 5:29 pm - 13 Comments
On the ground in Waitangi - by Catherine Delahunty
I am always astonished by the contrast between the media reporting on Waitangi and the experience on the ground. This year was no exception. There has been a lot of media talk about Hone Harawira’s “State of the Maori Nation” speech. Actually, he was a member of a panel which included Metiria Turei and Parekura [...] read moreFebruary 7, 2011 2:54 pm - 21 Comments
Whose story? History teachers exposed - by Catherine Delahunty
Richard Manning of Canterbury University has done a doctoral thesis which exposes cold facts about history teachers avoiding teaching Maori issues and topics. Richard took the rohe of Te Atiawa and did in-depth research with history teachers. He found only 3 percent were teaching the Maori topics which are an option in the curriculum. His [...] read moreJune 25, 2010 4:04 pm - 92 Comments
Appropriate levels of decision making – Te Tiriti and MMP - by Catherine Delahunty
Appropriate decision making is one of the core principles of the Greens and it is very useful when we are grappling with the developing discourse around MMP and also decision making under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. This core principle means that we uphold the importance of voting as a vital tool in decision making and [...] read moreMay 28, 2010 4:41 pm - 24 Comments
Republican Referenda or Te Tiriti Based Reform? - by Catherine Delahunty
It is not always easy being Green. I don’t care much for the monarchy but I don’t see republicanism as the only alternative and last night I had to decide whether to support Keith Locke’s Head of State Bill through to Select Committee. For some months we have had lively debate in our Caucus about [...] read moreApril 26, 2010 4:57 pm - 35 Comments
Waitangi Day 2010 - by Catherine Delahunty
The Greens had a stall this year and we flew the Green, Confederation of Chiefs and the tino rangatiratanga flags. Many people signed our petition to save our treasured places from mining and had conversations with us about myriad issues from sewage to constitutional change. Our Co-Leaders plus David Clendon and I attended the events. read moreFebruary 8, 2010 2:08 pm - 27 Comments
Greens at Waitangi - by David Clendon
Green MPs and other members will be at Waitangi in force this weekend. Anyone who is planning to be there is welcome to come by for a catch up, and maybe tell us what you think about some of the constitutional and other issues that will continue to affect and be affected by the Treaty relationship. read moreFebruary 5, 2010 8:09 am - 57 Comments
