Tuia Te Tiriti: Weaving Te Tiriti into Tertiary Education

Tuia Te Ako was planned for this year, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic this event has now been postponed until 2021.

2020 marks 180 years since the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the founding document of our nation. Tuia Te Ako 2021 will connect tertiary education and Te Tiriti o Waitangi to learn from the past, share current good practices, and plan for a Tiriti-led future.  

Join us in 2021

Join us in early July 2021 for Tuia Te Ako in Te Whanganui-ā-Tara at Massey University. Ako Aotearoa is proud to co-host Tuia Te Ako 2021 with Massey University. More information to come.

History of Tuia Te Ako

In August 2010, the inaugural Māori tertiary education hui, Tuia Te Ako, was held at Pipitea marae, Wellington. It was agreed that there was a need for such a gathering for Māori educators to come together to reflect on, and share, aspects of tertiary teaching and learning and that the event would be an ideal forum to discuss and share existing models of good teaching practice with a focus on assisting whānau, hapū, iwi, and Māori communities to achieve their aspirations.
