Established in 1986 as Project Waitangi, we are an independent, voluntary, community education group. We:

  • Use experienced Pakeha facilitators.
  • Involve people in activity-based learning techniques.
  • Work with participants to create a safe environment to enable full and free discussion on the issues raised in the workshop.
  • Provide independent resource material and a guide to further study.

Facilitator: Moea Armstrong

Moea has facilitated Treaty and anti-racism workshops in Northland since 1991, has been a journalist with mainstream and iwi media, and a planner with experience in the interface between local councils and tangata whenua. She is a fifth generation Pakeha with a passion for celebrating the promise of the Treaty, and cultural relationships in Aotearoa, through addressing our historical legacy.
