Education spokesperson Teanau Tuiono from the Green Party has welcomed a recent decision by the Government in its first step to implement New Zealand’s own history into the curriculum.
“It has been a long time coming, and I look forward to engaging with my communities about sharing their regional whakapapa to teach our tamariki their history,” said Teanau Tuiono.
“This is an opportunity for Māori to have a say through the public engagement by sharing our kōrero and whakapapa. Our iwi, hapū and whānau now have the opportunity to share historic encounters which have changed the lives of our people.”
