Te Kerēme and Settlement Workshops

Mā te rongo ka mohio,
Mā te mohio ka marama
Mā te marama ka matau
Mā te matau ka ora

Through listening comes awareness
Through awareness comes understanding
Through understanding comes knowledge
Through knowledge comes life and wellbeing

Listen to some of our most influential and impactful rangatira of our lifetime. Tā Tipene, Edward Ellison and David Higgins will share their stories of the challenges and successes of our Ngāi Tahu Settlements “Te Kerēme”.

The hope is that their knowledge will provide historical learnings that will give you a better understanding of how the Ngāi Tahu claim came to fruition and how we can use this legacy now, and moving forward, to provide wellbeing to all Ngāi Tahu whānui.

Held on the anniversary of the Crown Apology at Ōnuku Marae in 1998, this celebratory launch of a ten-workshop series will be hosted by Rakihia Tau, who was part of the “A Team” negotiators and whose father was the claimant before the Waitangi Tribunal.

Martin Fisher lead workshops for kaimahi and whānau during 2022 covering the historical background of Te Tiriti, Te Kerēme and the Ngāi Tahu Settlement.
