Moving beyond a commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi to action

Moving beyond a commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi to action


Data shows Māori are significantly under-represented in leadership and management across the sport and recreation sector. Māori are also under-resourced and, for the most part, unable to participate in physical activities that are culturally appropriate to them.  

We’re committed to changing this. To find out more, sign up to one of our three webinars for an introduction to our new Māori Activation Plan, Te Aho a Ihi Aotearoa, and Māori Outcomes Framework, Te Pākē o Ihi Aotearoa.  

Features of the plan are: 

  • More culturally distinctive pathways will be available to Māori across the country 
  • More Māori organisations will be sustainable and supported by Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa 
  • He Oranga Poutama, one of the longest standing Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa initiatives, will be extended nationwide to more communities across the country 
  • Tapuwaekura, that runs parallel to Healthy Active Learning, will be rolled across the country into Kura Māori Levels 1 and 2 
  • A National Māori Sport Collective will be established and a Te Tiriti partnership formed between the Collective and Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa, and 
  • A new Māori play plan will be implemented. 

Join our Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa Toihautū Moana-Lee Raihania and consultant Rangimarie Parata-Takurua for this wide-ranging discussion on our hikoi (journey) to giving effect to Te Tiriti, how we’re building our cultural capability and capacity and how we are contributing to whanau, hapū, iwi, Māori wellbeing through physical activity in ways that are culturally appropriate to Māori.  

This is a unique opportunity to learn about Te Pākē and Te Aho, as well as what is coming up in the next three years.  

This webinar will be hosted by Sport NZ Ihi Aotearoa. 


There are three opportunities to join this webinar. 


Anyone interested in Te Tiriti o Waitangi and partnering with Māori, iwi, hapū and whānau.
