Perspectives on Identity & Culture in Aotearoa New Zealand

Exploring how participants can contribute to Aotearoa becoming a nation that values Māori rangatiratanga, while creating positive understandings of our own identities, often leads to some discussion about the relevance of te Tiriti o Waitangi.  In this  interview long-time Pakeha Treaty educator Mitzi Nairn talks about how this work has meant coming to terms with “shifting goalposts”.
