Māori have a sense of belonging facilitated through Māori processes/tikanga while establishing a safe cultural environment for all

The key principles of our Tupu Tahi Policy are:

  1. Forming and outworking a partnership between Māori and Tauiwi growing together as One in Jesus Christ
  2. Promoting equity and equality while recognizing the unique place of Māori as tangata whenua of Aotearoa
  3. Celebrating cultural diversity
  4. Respectful exchange of ideas

Tupu Tahi/Growing Together as One is one of five policies that relates directly to Taha Māori within Te Whare Kaupapa Āwhina /Open Home Foundation.
