Ko te āwhinatanga mai te mahi a Tīmoti, kua hanga a mātou māramatanga i te paparahi tuhinga me whakaārahi a mātou kaupapa o te ao Māori ki roto i a mātou kāhui a MOTAT.
I auaha ia mā mātou hui ki te ngāwari a mātou whakamāramatanga i te māoritanga tūturu o ngā tuhinga.
Kua honohono me herehere a mātou ngākau ki ngā paparahi tuhinga a Tiriti o Waitangi me te He Whakaputanga hoki mai ngā pūrakau me ngā kōrero maumaharatanga a Tīmoti.
Kei te waimarie mātou me tāngata katoa rānei i te rongo ki tōna kōrero matatau me ōna pūmanawa. Kei te hiahia a Aotearoa ōna taonga kōrero i te wā nei i hanga te ao Māori i te katoa o tātou whenua.
Bailey Henare Turia, People & Culture Coordinator – Kaupapa Māori
We approached Empowering Change to support the MOTAT Team here in Tāmaki Makaurau as we embark on our journey into te ao Māori and te Tiriti o Waitangi. The beautiful incorporation of tāonga, pūrākau and story-telling wrapped around the history of Aotearoa made for a heart-felt session where we could all let down our walls and any preconceived ideas, and just tune in to new ways of understanding this Kaupapa. Positive feedback from participants came through in waves, many expressing an eagerness to learn more about how they can become more active treaty partners, in their personal and professional lives.
We will definitely work with Tīmoti and the team at Empowering Change in the future, in as many capacities as they are willing to work with us in. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.
