Members of the New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils met in Paihia (Northland) over the weekend to learn about Te Ao Māori and the history of Aotearoa from a Māori perspective. The hui included a visit to the grounds of the Waitangi Treaty grounds in Paihia where members of MNZ together with Tangata Whenua gathered to commemorate NZ’s multicultural communities commitment to the Reo Maori version of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
We planted a kauri tree named ‘Mokopuna’ to the first people’s of this land as a gesture of goodwill. May our dedication and commitment to Te Tiriti grow as strong and graceful as this Mokopuna.
