I take part because of my obligations for reconciliation under Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
I take part because of my obligations for reconciliation under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. My ancestors’ failure to uphold Te Tiriti resulted in loss of language. As their uri, I have a responsibility to support spaces which endorse and celebrate that which was lost. They helped to constrain te reo, but I am an accomplice in it’s liberation.
