Abstract or Summary

At Treaty Conference 2000, spokespeople from organisations around the country described Treaty journeys undertaken in their workplaces since 1984. I interpreted themes in their discourse, including affirming Maori authority and striving towards a ‘right’ relationship with Maori. This gave rise to dissonance, discomfort and struggle in a long hard journey of change away from the colonising discourses that maintain Pakeha cultural and institutional dominance. I would like to host a conversation for us to consider whether such an 'honouring the Treaty' discourse is a significant shift towards decolonising ourselves.
