“Our constitution and structures reflect our Treaty commitments, and rangatiratanga is guaranteed to Māori. Every person in Aotearoa New Zealand understands and respects Te Tiriti as our founding document, understands the harm done by colonisation in our country, and works to heal injustices and to see Te Tiriti honoured.”
This is the inspiring vision for a Treaty honouring Aotearoa expressed in Te Ira Tāngata: People’s Agenda for Aotearoa just released by the great people at ActionStation.
Te Ira Tāngata brings together a vision of hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders. It promotes change in the kāwanatanga (government) sphere, and responds to Māori-led work for constitutional transformation.
Alongside promoting a vision for Aotearoa in 2040, Te Ira Tāngata details the policies needed now to achieve this vision and provides scorecards of political parties commitments to these policies. Check out the Treaty scorecard and look too at the other scorecards as the commitment to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi is reflected in many areas.
Te Ira Tāngata is an awesome tool for promoting short term action for long term change. Ka nui te mihi ki ngā ringa tōhau nui o ActionStation.
