Pākehā solidarity and threats to racial justice

Heather was recently interviewed by Dale Husband at Radio Waatea about Pākehā and Tauiwi responses to the current threats to racial justice. Tāmaki Treaty Workers are issuing regular calls to action for Pākehā to stand in solidarity with Māori to resist efforts to marginalise Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

For Pākehā wanting to get involved

  • If you work in the health sector consider joining STIR: Stop Institutional Racism. This ten-year old group is working to eliminate racism within the health sector. They engage in advocacy write submissions, do research, mobilise people, and influence health policy. They also prepare expert evidence for human rights bodies.

  • Tu Tama Wahine o Taranaki sell some amazing posters (and other resources) that offer suggestions for how to honour Te Tiriti for both children and adults.

  • Network Waitangi Ōtautahi sells copies of He Whakaputanga o Te Rangatiratanga o Nū Tīreni and Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the authorative Maori text) with the Margaret Mutu translation and other useful resources including ten things to do to decolonisation for organisations and individuals.

  • Network Waitangi Whāngarei sells copies of Ngapuhi Speaks which is a definitive text on the background to He Whakaputanga declaration and Te Tiriti.
