The model for addressing cultural diversity presented in this book is based on an indigenous Kaupapa Maori response to the dominant discourse within New Zealand. It promotes self-determination as guaranteed in the Treaty of Waitangi as a metaphor for power sharing and has as its goal the advancement of educational outcomes and life opportunities for Maori children and those from other cultures. In this model the classroom is a place where young people's cultures are incorporated and enhanced, and where the teacher interacts with students in such a way that new knowledge is co-created and not seen as something that the teacher alone possesses. This analysis will resonate with educators who are attempting to develop culturally relevant pedagogies.
