Tikanga Maori - Maori culture
We here at BTI acknowledge that we are still on our journey of discovery in terms of understanding and of having a heart of sincerity in applying cultural values and perspectives that can be inter-woven into our underlying Christian philosophy and vision. We accept and endorse that Ngati Kahu as tangata whenua have a spiritual and emotional relationship to the land on which the campus is sited. We are committed to developing our relationship with each other. Under our covering we are open and committed to the embracing of all cultural and ethnic representations on campus.
Room 4301 is our Cultural Room.
