TREATY 2 U tells the story of New Zealand’s founding document: the Treaty of Waitangi. It covers the events that led up to the Treaty. It explains what is written in the documents, and the crucial differences between the Māori and English versions.
The Waitangi Tribunal Set up by the Treaty of Waitangi Act 1975, the Waitangi Tribunal is a permanent commission of inquiry that makes recommendations on claims brought by Māori relating to Crown actions which breach the promises made in the Treaty of Waitangi.
The on-site and hands-on learning experiences at the Treaty Grounds provide opportunities for students to critically engage with Waitangi, the place, with Te Tiriti o Waitangi and The Treaty of Waitangi, and with the history of Aotearoa / New Zealand as a nation. All visits are facilitated by our Education Team and trained Waitangi Treaty Grounds staff
The Treaty of Waitangi is one of eight principles in The New Zealand Curriculum that provide a foundation for schools' decision making. The Treaty of Waitangi principle puts students at the centre of teaching and learning, asserting that they should experience a curriculum that engages and challenges them, is forward-looking and inclusive, and affirms New Zealand’s unique identity.
