Building Māori Cultural Capability - Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa

Webinar

Increasingly Māori are on a journey to re-indigenise themselves. They are looking for culturally distinctive pathways, for and by Māori, that will enable them to participate and succeed as Māori. The way the sector currently defines and recognises physical activity is not aligned to a Te Ao Māori (Māori worldview) perspective.   

In 2019, a customised cultural capability programme named Tū Te Ihi was introduced and embedded in Sport NZ through the induction programme in a commitment to building culturally capable staff and leadership. Staff feedback has been extremely positive and tikanga Māori has been embedded in how we welcome manuhiri and new staff, conduct hui, engage with Māori and with each other.  

Register for these free Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa webinars which are targeted at Regional Sports Trusts, National Sport and Recreation Organisations, Regional Sport and Recreation Organisations, Sports Clubs and anyone interested in building culturally confident and capable leadership and staff in areas such as Te Tiriti o Waitangi, relationships with Māori, understanding Māori worldviews, Te Reo Māori, practices and customary protocols.   

Hear from Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa Toihautu Moana-Lee Raihania, Mātanga Te Ao Māori Neavin Broughton and Perēri Hathaway as they share the journey and steps taken to develop a customised cultural capability programme for Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa.
