He Kōrero – Te Tiriti Podcasts
Community Research is proud to bring to you our new podcast channel – He Kōrero. These podcasts share insights, ideas, new ways of thinking and action, that can support the important mahi that community leaders and organisations are doing to make a difference in Aotearoa.
Our first podcast series is Te Tiriti Kōrero. We launched this on Waitangi Day 2022 to raise the mana of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the founding document of Aotearoa-New Zealand. This collection of knowledge, lived-experience and research highlights Kaupapa Māori practitioners.
To accompany our first series of podcasts, we have gathered Te Tiriti resources to help you put Te Tiriti into action. These resources will support our sectors to become dynamic Tiriti partners.
Please add your own resources to this kete, please email us.
Ngā mihi nui to Making Everything Achievable (Kaye Maree Dunn) and Blue Reef (Rob Kitchen) for their exceptional mahi on these podcasts.
Podcast Series One – Te Tiriti Kōrero
Te Tiriti Kōrero with Dr Chelsea Grootveld – “Our mokopuna don’t have time for us to muck around.”
Chelsea is Ngāi Tai, Ngāti Porou, Te Whānau a Apanui, Whakatōhea and Tuhourangi. She is passionate about whānau centred and whānau led education, health and wellbeing. In this conversation, Chelsea shares her journey of deepening her political awareness in Te Ao Māori and how Te Tiriti is a critical part of her mahi as a kaupapa Māori evaluator.
Te Tiriti Kōrero with Dr Kathie Irwin – “When you take a critical analysis view, a kaupapa Māori view, you don’t start with the individual.”
Dr Kathie Irwin MNZM, PHD, MInstD is a third generation Māori, woman and educator. This interview outlines how public service and social justice are deeply embedded in her bloodlines. Her passion inspires her to contribute to nation building in innovative and creative ways that are framed by our Ngāti Porou tipuna Sir Apirana Ngata’s whakatauākī (proverb) “E tipu, e rea”.
Te Tiriti Kōrero with Mike Smith – “We have to invest in the vision of all peoples in this country.”
Mike Smith (Ngāti Kahu, Ngāpuhi) is an educationalist and has spent the last 40 years focussed on taking action where it matters. Mike has used his love for his community and the Taiao to advocate for the health and wellbeing of Papatūānuku, highlighting the irreversible impacts of climate change on indigenous communities. In this interview, Mike shares the impact his Mother had on his life, especially in reminding him of his identity and his tūpuna who were original signatories to Te Tiriti.
Te Tiriti Kōrero with Ali Hamlin-Paenga – “We do not need others to be Māori for us.”
Ali Hamlin, the Kaihautū – CEO of Ngati Kahungunu Community Services, provides her insights into how Te Tiriti informs her practice when advocating for equity and fair outcomes for whānau. She wants to ensure that whānau, no matter where they might be in life, have their mana intact, that they have the power and decision-making over their own lives.
