NZ Māori Council of Churches

Mono-Multi Minority

Human Rights Commission - “mono-culturalism does not work for minority groups. TRWINH supports the Human Rights Commission statement that mono-culturalism doesn’t work for minority groups. Multi-culturalism doesn’t work all that well either. Both expressions indicate 'our composition' not 'our true relationship' with each other in this country. At the 2012 New Zealand Diversity Forum held in Auckland this month (August), the theme of the conference addressed “Aotearoa, A Fair Go for All”, as a continuance from Race Relations Day in March 2012.

Fr. Anthony Brown, Katorika Māori representative and TRWINH spokesperson commented, “we start by looking at the things we have in common, appreciate contribution each one makes and strengthen NZ society”. He added, “to encourage more festivals, community gardens, projects and open days for more cultural awareness and sharing.

Fr. Anthony Brown continued, “the strength of Māori 'Iwi' is in its 'hapū and whanau”. Further, commenting that “no one comes to this country to make it their home ‘empty handed’. Ends subsidiarity for kaupapa Māori and agrees that the strength of any iwi is in its hapū and whanau.
