Aotearoa New Zealand: we need to talk

Gareth MorganTreaty

Morgan Foundation’s Nick Tansley went to Taranaki to join the ‘Peace Walk’ hikoi for the first day. He asked some of the people involved what motivated them to take part in the walk. As you’ll see they want to start a conversation with the whole country about how we heal the past and move forward together. The people of Taranaki are sending the rest of the country a message, the only question is whether we will listen.

It is great to see this happening, the messages coming through are the same as we found in the Talk Treaty project, which interviewed more than 50 prominent New Zealanders about the Treaty. During this research we discovered that the central idea of the Treaty is that we agreed to share this country, look after each other and talk through our issues. It is time to talk.
