The Māori Budget this year continues investment in whānau wellbeing, access to whare, and whakapapa, all of which support the Government’s plan to address the cost of living.

Titewhai Harawira came to signify the essence of the Māori renaissance period, an awakening of Māoridom to not only the wrongs of our collective past, but just as importantly in setting in place a framework for the collective progression of our country through honouring the commitments of our forebearers to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the promises it holds for all.

Hon Willie Jackson

It has been an intrepid journey for this nation to bring forward and hold present the aspirations of our foundational agreement, in a way that reflects what was envisaged by ancestors who signed it. By 2040, Aotearoa will mark 200 years since the signing of the Treaty and the partnership intended between the Crown and Māori.

Hon Nanaia Mahuta
