MĀORI CULTURAL SAFETY SESSIONS TO BENEFIT HUTT VALLEY DHB STAFF AND PATIENTS
We want a conversation that adds value for both tangata tiriti (non-Māori) and tangata whenua, and our active partnership to make a rocking country: Aotearoa, says Hutt Valley DHB Pou Tikanga Rawiri Hirini.
The programme’s first module, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, will be an opportunity for staff to learn more about New Zealand from a Māori perspective, through the lens of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The Treaty of Waitangi).
Staff will learn about pre- and post-colonial New Zealand history including a breakdown of Te Tiriti articles, themes of racism, and bi-cultural themes for active partnership, Rawiri said.
“It’s also about supporting out staff. We need to be safe in accommodation and navigating new Māori concepts to staff.”.....
