This course builds on skills and knowledge introduced in Tangata Whenua 1 regarding the implementation of te reo me ngā tikanga Māori in early childhood settings and participation in noho marae. You will be asked to articulate a personal and professional commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnership through an informed bi-cultural teaching philosophy.
