Kia ora mai koutou katoa and welcome to this issue of Whitiwhiti Kōrero - a newsletter keeping you informed about what's happening in the Human Rights Commission's Te Mana i Waitangi Project.

The Human Rights Commission promotes the Treaty of Waitangi as:

  • The "promise of two peoples to take the best possible care of each other" (quote from Bishop Manu Bennett)
  • It belongs to all of us.
  • It is the founding document of our nation.

This newsletter aims to bring to life these messages through stories, information and discussion.

Whitiwhiti Korero is available in both English and Te Reo. For copies, email treaty@hrc.co.nz or visit our webpage at www.hrc.co.nz/treaty
