0800Haumi: Allies in action

In March 2020, speakers from Aotearoa and around the world participated in an online conference, Te Tiriti Based Futures and Anti-Racism 2020. The webinars are now available online. The organisers have done an amazing job in making these resources available, particularly during trying times. He mihi nunui ki a rātou.

In the webinar 0800Haumi: Allies in Action, Julia Whaipooti (Ngāti Porou) and Jen Margaret (Pākehā) discussed what happens when Pākehā call on Māori for knowledge, support, work and advice etc.

Julia and Jen also discussed how Pākehā acting as haumi (allies) can respond and upskill in response to structural, overt or implicit racism.

Following the webinar, Jen and Julia responded in writing to the many questions that could not be answered live, for lack of time. These responses are available here: 0800HAUMI pātai.

To save 100 handouts this evening and to make it easier to access online sources we’ve just updated our resource list.
Te Tiriti o Waitangi information and action details key texts, website and media sources that are used to inform Groundwork workshops. There is a wealth of useful resources on Te Tiriti – this is a starting point not an exhaustive list. Accompanying the list are ideas of personal actions people might take in response to a Te Tiriti workshop.
