This is an historic occasion; it was 20 years ago when Māori educationalists gathered here under the mantle of Tā Tumu and carved out an agenda for Māori educational success. The broad aim then, as it is today, was seeking active Māori participation in the design of education policies and programmes within a model of partnership and from the foundations of a focused Māori voice.
