Mahuta sharing Aotearoa indigenous pathway with UN
Māori Development Minister Nanaia Mahuta is heading for the United Nations to argue the case for Indigenous Peoples’ rights around the world.
Minister Mahuta will be speaking several times at the Permanent Forum of the UN from Monday.
She will also attend a World Indigenous Business Forum roundtable discussion.
She believes tikanga Māori adds value to New Zealand’s international reputation, and she will emphasise how indigenous development is fundamental to stronger relationships between indigenous peoples and their governments.
She will also explain New Zealand’s roadmap to compliance with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
When she is in North America, Minister Mahuta will also visit Toronto where she will attend an ANZAC service, meet with young indigenous leaders and visit various housing initiatives.
