Remembering Our Past, Reclaiming Our Future
Resilience, Climate Change and Indigenous Practices for Sustainability

A rare opportunity for international and local funders/donors, Indigenous leaders and organisations to meet together in a small indigenous Māori community, which initiated an Iwi/Tribal Development Strategy 31 years ago. Come witness the changes, experience the surroundings, meet amazing people and be immersed in the line-up of inspirational speakers.

With a particular focus on:

  • Climate Change & Fresh Clean Water
  • Food Sovereignty
  • Education
  • Traditional Knowledge
  • Indigenous and youth development

What is the International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP)?

A global donor affinity group, started in 1999, to convene Indigenous Peoples, donors (funders) and foundations to advance partnerships that can improve the lives of Indigenous Peoples globally. IFIP encourages innovation and increased effectiveness within the grant-making community by convening meetings and networks, enabling partnerships and providing practical tools to support funders to engage with Indigenous communities.

For the past five and a half years the J R McKenzie Trust has been working to improve its support of Māori development. We have increased the proportion of funding from 3% to 37%, embedding some practices and developing relationships with other funders. We are exploring ways of strengthening these relationships and promoting benefits. J R McKenzie have been members of the International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP) for the past five years.
