Regan Stokes is Māori and English. In this kōrero he discusses how cultural dislocation became cultural enlightenment as he gradually discovered the Māori language. Regan advocates for te reo Māori to be taught with an emphasis on the cultural significance of the words themselves, and is now teaching community te reo Māori night classes in Ōtautahi Christchurch.

Beyond the fleeting and at time swallow beauty of western bouquets, flowers have been the pluriversal language of peace, love and healing.

Tangata Tiriti: The Hidden Story of the Importance of te Tiriti to You
BY ABBY SUSZKO
@ VOL 39
ON APR 27, 2019
Ko Whakaari te maunga. Ko Kaikarae te awa. Nō Ōtepoti ahau. Ko Ngāti Pākehā rāua ko Ngāti Tonga ōku iwi. Ko Abby Suszko ahau.
Dr. Abby Suszko is tangata tiriti, whose ancestors hail from the United Kingdom, Europe and the Pacific. Currently Abby works as a Kaiārahi Māori at the University of Canterbury, where she facilitates and supports the implementation of bicultural competence and confidence across degree programmes. Charged with this mahi, Abby helps both students and staff upskill on their knowledge and application of te Tiriti o Waitangi, information often missing from their educational experience and work practice. She approaches these conversations, not as an outsider describing a historical Crown-Māori relationship, but as a person whose very identity is founded on te Tiriti. In this Pechakucha, Abby shares a story often hidden from non-Indigenous New Zealanders, that when te Tiriti is rightly understood, it is the very reason they can call Aotearoa home. The intention of this kōrero is to provide listeners with the understanding that with belonging there are responsibilities to our tangata whenua Treaty partner. And that rather than harbouring the suspicion that fully honouring te Tiriti will see them expelled from this paradise, te Tiriti can be embraced as the basis for an enduring and equal partnership.
