te Tiriti o Waitangi

Rā 309 Rātu 7 o Whiringa-ā-rangi

Learning all the way today. I spent today in the office in Auckland learning about Te Tiriti o Waitangi and NZ history. Inspiring. Unfortunately, no photographic evidence so I’ll go with Day 1 of the black and white challenge. Take a photo from your daily life with no colour, no people and give no explanation. Easy peasy except I’m in the city and I’m a people watcher…

My first (hopefully not my last) CORE Education retreat. The whole company in Hanmer Springs to learn together, explore ideas, be creative and reimagine. Alex talked to us about how we should privilege the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi  over the principles.  He suggested that the principles are fine but too vague, too open to interpretation- maybe they present too many barriers. But the articles are more enabling. 

It made so much sense but I need time to unpack it more and really think about it.
