Came referred to posters by Tamaki Treaty Workers (a tauiwi
group in Auckland) showing 10 suggested decolonisation actions for change by non-Maori Kiwis.
The Treaty of Waitangi connects us to a history--not just to a signing in 1840, but a history of breaches, of Tauiwi

(foreigner) identity label, acknowledged the ongoing process of colonisation and their position as members of the dominant social group within New Zealand, whereas those who self-identified as "New Zealanders" made no such acknowledgements.
The difference, for instance, between tangata whenua (the local people of a place or people-place) and tauiwi

In attempting (unsuccessfully) at that juncture to constitutionalise the Treaty of Waitangi and the Treaty's implied social contract for a bicultural, binational political structure as supreme law, Sir Geoffrey Palmer and his legal team were fully cognisant of the accompanying and reciprocal rights of the tauiwi
