Becoming Tangata Tiriti brings together twelve non-Maori voices - dedicated professionals, activists and everyday individuals - who have engaged with te ao Maori and have attempted to bring te Tiriti to life in their work. In stories of missteps, hard-earned victories and journeys through the complexities of cross-cultural relationships, Becoming Tangata Tiriti is a book of lessons learned. Sociologist Avril Bell analyses the complicated journey of today's partners of te Tiriti o Waitangi, and asks: Who are we as tangata tiriti? How do we identify in relation to Maori? What are our responsibilities to te Tiriti? What do we do when we inevitably stumble along the way? With words by champions in their fields, including Meng Foon, Andrew Judd and others, this concise paperback acts as a guide for those just beginning their journey towards a Tiriti-based society - and is a sound refresher for others well along the path.
