Te Tatau Pounamu – The Greenstone Door:
Traditional knowledge and gateways to balanced relationships

8 June – 11 June 2008 (Auckland, New Zealand)

The Traditional Knowledge 2008 Conference focuses on traditional indigenous concepts, values, ideals, models and strategies for sustaining balanced and healthy relationships within and across families, communities, nations, nation-states, local, regional and global borders, territories and environments. It aims to provide opportunities to discuss indigenous strategies for sustaining relationships between collectives and over generations, for resolving conflict, for peace-making, reconciliation and restorative justice. There will also be opportunities to share what has been learned from diverse contexts around the world about how indigenous models, values, concepts and processes have been incorporated into state or government initiatives and with what impact for indigenous peoples. Abstracts close 30 April 2008.
