Māori left in 'precarious position'

after resignations at Unitec

Several Māori staff at Auckland's Unitec have resigned over what they say is institutionalised racism at the campus.

The Unitec Māori staff collective - Te Roopu Mataara - say they have been disrespected and staff and students feel culturally unsafe.

About 300 people gathered from the community this morning to stand with Tui Ah Loo who has resigned as the chair of the rūnanga.

Te Rūnanga o Te Whare Wānanga o Wairaka is Unitec's non-executive advisory group which was founded in 1991 to ensure they were considering how the Māori perspective was being represented and heard within the institution.
