Abstract

The problem and the solution. Descendants of many cultures have made Aotearoa/New Zealand their home but there exists a unique historical treaty-based relationship between the two main settler groups of the Maori (descendants of the first Polynesian settlers of 800 AD) and the Pakeha (descendants of the first British settlers of 1800 AD). Although much human resources literature still reflects a colonial bias, New Zealand's workforce relations now incorporate both Maori and Pakeha cultural customs. Using a dialectic approach, this article investigates the Maori influence in the changing culture of human resource development in Aotearoa/ New Zealand. © 2006, Sage Publications.
