Press Release

Aotearoa to host WIPCE 2005

Te Wânanga o Aotearoa will be hosting the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education (WIPCE) in 2005. It is expected that this will be the largest Indigenous conference to date with 4000 international delegates and 2000 national delegates expected to attend.

Te Wânanga o Aotearoa along with Dame Te Arikinui Te Atairangikaahu on behalf of Aotearoa were successful in their bid to host the 2005 WIPCE Conference at the previous conference held in Alberta, Canada in 2002 of which a delegation of around 700 New Zealand educators attended.

Chairperson of the organising Committee, Craig Coxhead said this is an opportunity for the Tertiary Institutions to work together on a positive project. The University of Waikato will be the main venue host with the support of Wintec and local providers within the Waikato Region. The conference will bring tremendous educational, economical and cultural opportunities for this region and Aotearoa.

The conference will open at Turangawaewae Marae with an official powhiri on Sunday November 27 and will run from Monday through to Thursday December 1 2005. The finale will be on Thursday evening at the Waikato Stadium with a closing ceremony and cultural extravaganza, which will be open to the public.

Tumuaki of Te Wânanga o Aotearoa Dr Rongo Wetere said Te Wânanga o Aotearoa is dedicated to promoting inspirational ideas and practices from Indigenous communities that can be applied on an international scale.

Ms Aroha Te Kanawa has been appointed the Project Manager for the WIPCE conference. Please do not hesitate to contact Aroha if you have any further queries.
