He Tiriti Mihinare - An Anglican Treaty
Feb 15, 2021
Rev Dr Hirini Kaa

Rev Dr. Hirini Kaa uses his research for his doctoral thesis, and then book, to explore the coming of the Missionaries and the signing of the Treaty from a Maori, and in particular, Ngati Porou viewpoint. The key concept is matauranga - knowledge. Maori had a theological and philisophical framework which made sense of their world. They renegotiated this in light of the new knowledge presented by Pakeha. It was this matauranga that, more than anything, was guaranteeed in the Treaty. It is this matauranga that is finding expression today, and which we need as a nation, to stand along side the Pakeha viewpoint as we find our way in this rapidly changing world.

His book - Te Hāhi Mihinare | The Māori Anglican Church by Hirini Kaa can be purchased at good book stores or from https://www.bwb.co.nz/books/hahi-mihinare/
