Engaging Effectively with Māori
A programme of professional development opportunities for you, your staff and your organisation to develop the knowledge and skills required to engage effectively with Māori
Hone Hurihanganui and Aperahama Hurihanganui, father and son, are Engaging Well Ltd™. Through the Engaging Effectively with Māori programme, we provide professional development opportunities to people from all walks of life. We specialise in providing education, training, mentoring and advice in Cultural Competence, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Te Reo Māori, Tikanga Māori and the composition and tutoring of waiata, haka, karakia and other Māori cultural expressions. The Engaging Effectively with Māori programme or any of its components can be shaped to suit your wants and needs.
I just wanted to write to express my thanks to Hone for the "Engaging Effectively with Maori" session that was held this morning (15.5.19) at Tauranga Hospital. Hone has literally changed my whole mindset - I feel so empowered and determined to change the way I engage with people of all cultures but particularly Maori, whom we have failed and continue to fail with our current health care system. I have enrolled in a Te Reo course, am going to speak up and do the right thing when I hear or see any kind of racism, unconscious or not. I really identified with the idea that we have been institutionalized and I for one am going to change that. Many thanks - I really feel my attitude and response and therefore my children's will be changed forever.
