Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 90 minutes

Engaging with Māori collectives and iwi can be a complex state of affairs. However, largely as a result of Treaty settlements, Māori collectives and iwi are now a major part of New Zealand’s economic, political, public and private spheres.

Will you be engaging with Māori – either because you are legally obliged to or because it makes sense from a business or policy point of view? What are the benefits of doing so, who do you talk to and what are their drivers?

This module will outline some of the practical and legal considerations you need to be aware of when engaging with Māori collectives and iwi.

The module will also look at the opportunities for commercial and cultural development and some of the pitfalls to look out for in the post-settlement cultural and legal context.

Topics covered will include:
  • An overview of the different legislative obligations in both the public and private spheres.
  • The different forms of Māori collectives from post-settlement governance entities to Māori incorporations and some issues in engaging with Māori collectives.
  • The key commercial and cultural drivers of Māori collectives.
  • Different ways of formalising engagement with Māori collectives.

Learning objectives

After this module you will be able to:
  • Understand the legal and cultural context for Māori in the post-settlement space.
  • Appreciate some of the issues relating to engagement with Māori collectives.
  • Develop some proactive strategies for developing long-lasting and sustainable relationships with Māori collectives.

Engaging with Māori can become a complex state of affairs. However, largely as a result of Treaty settlements, Māori are now set to be a major part of New Zealand’s political, economic and commercial life. Whether we like it or not, Māori are key stakeholders and are now integral players in various public and private spheres.

The purpose of this webinar, and the accompanying materials, is to provide an insight into how public and private entities, from government institutions to private commercial businesses and entities, can better engage with Māori collectives. This can be a minefield for many entities that want to establish a relationship with Māori collectives or groups, or strengthen an existing relation with Māori.
