Korero Tahi: Talking Together

Auckland University Press

Korero Tahi: Talking Together is a handbook and companion piece to Dame Joan Metge's earlier work Talking Past Each Other. In Korero Tahi she presents a procedure for managing group discussion which borrows from and draws on Maori tikanga (protocol). It is designed for use in settings where Maori from different iwi or Pakeha from different ethnic groups are present and committed to working together but it could be used in a wide range of contexts such as conferences, workshops, and community discussions. Korero Tahi is based on Metge's own experience of observation in Maori settings and on discussion with Maori experts and working with Maori groups. A practical guide in a wide range of contexts, it also has a wider implications for the whole of society.
