View Professor Margaret Mutu talking about "Embedding Te Tiriti o Waitangi to address racism in tertiary education". This seminar from our 2020/2021 lunchtime Tiriti seminar series is of a seminal nature. Professor Mutu focusses on 'racism' and refers back to various other documents in addition to Te Tiriti, like The Doctrine of Discovery, He Wakaputanga, UNDRIP, the Matike Mai Aotearoa Constitutional Review by Margaret and Moana Jackson, and the 2020 Education Amendment Act.
