Learn about Te Tiriti o Waitangi in your language!
We are proud to offer information about the Treaty of Waitangi in many community languages. These are translations of educational resources used in our Tangata Tiriti – Treaty People workshops. The posters and handouts give a summary of the key points from Te Tiriti.
Our resources are available in the following languages
For each language you can download:
- An A3 poster of a summary of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the key points from the Māori text).
- An A4 handout of a summary of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the same key points from the Māori text).
- An A4 handout comparing the wording of original Māori text with the English document (again, in summary).
- A flyer in each language explaining how to access our resources and how to contact us to book a workshop about Te Tiriti, in many languages.
