Te Kōngahu Museum Tour

September 21, 2023

Header Image: Inside Te Kōngahu Museum, our story begins in the Navigators section.

Our education team can support and inspire teachers on this journey – join us on our Aotearoa NZ’s Histories Te Kōngahu Museum Tour.  Build on your knowledge and understanding of our nation’s founding and soak up Waitangi’s unique beauty, culture and history at your leisure after the tour.

Waitangi’s unique stories and taonga bring to life our history within the context of Tino rangatiratanga me te kāwanatanga in the new curriculum. Explore pre-treaty relationships and factors that led to the development of the two major agreements between iwi and the British government – He Whakaputanga and Te Tiriti o Waitangi|The Treaty of Waitangi. Compare and contrast the differences in the two versions of Te Tiriti|The Treaty. Examine post-treaty relationships and the history of contests over authority and control, at the heart of which are the authorities guaranteed by Te Tiriti o Waitangi|Treaty of Waitangi. How do these continue to impact our society today?  Why does knowing all of this have value not just for the individual, but for positive changes for everyone in our society?

After your museum tour, explore the Treaty Grounds fully with your colleagues - you may want to enjoy morning tea or lunch at our Whare Waka Cafe.

Our New Zealand trained educators are happy to communicate with your group before you visit and are flexible in personalising your museum tour to best meet your needs and focus.
