Crown/Māori Relations – Have your say 2018

Nau mai, haere mai

The Minister for Crown/Māori Relations, Hon Kelvin Davis, is responsible for ensuring a healthy Crown/Māori relationship.  He’s keen to get your ideas about how it could be better - and the sort of projects he should focus on. 

The relationship between the Crown and Māori is, and will continue to be, an important one for all New Zealanders.

The public is invited to hui (meetings) to discuss ideas. These are being held across the country. See here for dates and a location near you. You will need to RSVP to

If you can’t get to one of the public hui, you can still have your say by putting your thoughts and ideas down on the following pages. We need your thoughts and ideas by 5pm, Wednesday 30 May, 2018.

Or send us your ideas, no stamp required, to:

Freepost Authority 254825
Crown/Māori Relations
PO Box 180
