Rourou Conversations

Becoming Tangata Tiriti Ep 1: why us, why now?

Listen on

Episode notes

We, Gwyn and Fi, introduce ourselves, our experiences, knowledge and relationship with Te Tiriti o Waitangi as well as bust and challenge some assumptions and myths that exist around this.

Becoming Tangata Tiriti is a ⁠⁠⁠⁠Leadership Lab Rourou intiative⁠⁠⁠⁠, developed in collaboration with  ⁠⁠⁠⁠PlainsFM⁠⁠⁠⁠, and is a series of kōrero/conversations about Te Tiriti o Waitangi and what it means to be Tangata Tiriti in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The series is brought to you by Gwyn John and Fi Deehan, two non-Māori people living in Aotearoa New Zealand. We acknowledge that this is the frame of reference from which we speak and discuss this topic. We acknowledge that this topic is so much more than we could hope to explore in this series and that it may be difficult for some to hear us discuss some of these events in such a quick manner. We acknowledge that we are not able to give this kōrero the time it actually deserves. What we are trying to achieve is to simply begin some conversations and learning journeys that need to be started.
