Kia uru kahikatea ki tū | Success through unity of purpose

The whakataukī and interconnected growth behaviour of the kahikatea promote
‘unity’. Here is a full explanation of this whakataukī and tohu.

We are excited to provide a range of Māori cultural capability courses (physical and online) under our ‘Te Kahikatea’ development framework of interconnected learning delivered with a Māori cultural perspective. All courses are presented by Dr Jim Mather, Moana Tuwhare, Te Kowhai Robinson or Kerira Tapene.

Our aim is to assist participants to:

  • Demystify what Māori governance actually is in a culturally safe and supportive learning environment.
  • Develop confidence in attendees who are required to engage with Māori entities and/or Māori communities.
  • Provide understanding and insights into te āo Māori / the Māori world.
  • Explain the relevance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its core principles.
  • Provide an overarching approach to the implementation of Māori cultural values and Te Tiriti principles at the strategic and organisational culture levels.
  • Fulfil ‘professional’ cultural development requirements.
