Te Tiriti o Waitangi - Treaty Talks

Waitangi Day is often a time of the year where culture, identity and language is at the forefront of educators’ thinking and planning. Next week, members of our CORE team share their thinking about such topics, with a particular focus on Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Look out for our Treaty Talks posts, livestreams and resources, running all week on Facebook Twitter and here on edSpace. We'd love you to join the conversations.

      Can any friend suggest some art works to do with children during the Treaty of Waitangi Celebration. We have many. But I am looking for different this year. Te Ra Team!

        Kia ora @mohanidukkikki, good to hear from you.

        I've seen a lovely art experience where students have been able to paint their learner profile - ko wai ahau or who am I?

        The image has included:

        • maunga (mountain)
        • awa (river)
        • whānau (family)
        • e hoa ma (friendships)
        • taonga and favourite place/s
        • whakatauki and/or local legends
        • me

        This idea could also extend to students choosing a treaty article or goal to work towards in 2018.

        Art processes have included:

        • Different scale (ie: size of mountain and importance of objects)
        • Overlapping (some images must be in front of/behind others)
        • Different art materials (paint, pastel, mixed media - such as printed computer images of children's faces etc)
        • Use of te reo Māori (signage, words)

        You might also find some other ideas in this crowd-sourced presentation on Te Titiri in the classroom. Let us know how you get on, whatever you do, we've love an update. smiley
