Kia maumahara : Waitangi 175 : “He iwi tahi tatou”

What a year this is for anniversaries. For many of us, top of the list is the 175 year celebration of the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi

Te Tiriti reached Te Whanganui-a-Tara with Henry Williams in April, 1840 but our whānau deliberated for 10 days on its pros and cons before committing tohu to paper on 29 April (and 4/5 May at Queen Charlotte Sound).

Waitangi 175

On Thursday 21 May from 1-2pm at Wellington Central Library, there will be a free lunchtime kōrero : Edwina Hughes, of Peace Movement Aotearoa and Dr Carwyn Jones (Ngāti Kahungunu and Aitanga-a-Māhaki), senior lecturer in law at Victoria University, will offer their thoughts on Visions for Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
