The Treaty of Waitangi is one of the founding documents of New Zealand — signed by Māori chiefs and representatives of Queen Victoria at Waitangi in 1840. Te Tiriti is an agreement of how Māori and the Government of New Zealand will work together and the respect they will show each other.
We are committed to the Treaty of Waitangi. Our relationship with Māori is centred on building partnerships, ensuring participation, and being effective and responsive. This is an essential part of who we are and the way we operate. It is a deep and abiding commitment that we have made as individuals and as an organisation.
• encourage and empower an increased ownership in the organisation and its core business.
• strengthen the capability of Māori communities to develop whānau initiatives that meet their needs across social, cultural and economic sectors.
