Te Mana i Waitangi – Te Mana Iwi Taketake


This module explores indigenous peoples’ rights under the United Nations
Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The Declaration
affirms that indigenous peoples are equal to all other peoples, while
recognising the right of all peoples to be different, to consider themselves
different, and to be respected.

Indigenous peoples are entitled to all the human rights that all people
have. Yet throughout history, indigenous peoples have had their rights violated
and continue to be among the world’s most disadvantaged groups. Human rights
are the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. For us to
be able to contribute to a free, just and peaceful society, we need to know
what human rights are and why they are important, and how to use and promote
them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe briefly what indigenous rights are
  • Explain some of the reasons for a Declaration on Indigenous Peoples’ Right
  • Identify the links between the Indigenous Peoples' Declaration and Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • Recognise and apply core rights in the Declaration
  • Identify ways that the Declaration can be used
