Abstract or Summary

The Network Waitangi Whangarei application states the following purpose for the State of the Nation addresses on Waitangi Day:“Looking to our country’s history with an eye to what the future may hold”, “to contemplate the full meaning of the concept of partnership with one nation, two partners, and many cultures”. My intention is to use my PhD research to present two concepts – that of Pakeha in conversation with Maori over time, and that of Pakeha changing by taking steps from a position of indifference towards a listening relationship. I address a form of cultural racism, and invite responses from Pakeha as individuals and as groups. My calls are for funding for civic Treaty education, and for Treaty training for journalists & media.
