READINGS & ACTIONS
There’s a wealth of useful resources out there about Te Tiriti of Waitangi and it can be difficult to know where to begin. We have compiled a brief one-page list (by no means exhaustive) of the key texts, websites and other media we at Groundwork draw on to inform our workshops. This list is also presented below.
Included in the document are ideas for personal actions people might take in response to Te Tiriti or one of our Te Tiriti workshops.
