Te Rōpū Pounamu

Te Rōpū Pounamu is a Māori network within the Green Party Aotearoa New Zealand, established in 2000 after the Ōtaki Summer hui. At a hui at Hirangi Marae in December 2001 we agreed on our overall relationship with the Green Party. We resolved that:

"Acknowledging the Green Party's commitment to honouring te Tiriti o Waitangi Te Roopu Pounamu accepts the responsibility to actively support and advocate for the inclusion of a Māori dimension in all Green Party processes, policies and practices, in the context of a reciprocal relationship of aroha between Te Roopu Pounamu and the wider Green Party."
