  6. 6. The Market Economy<br />“My kids will come back home one day and make a difference. Right now they are not ready. Right now my children are living in the western world and are earning the big money. Their focus is on their careers, on getting educated and getting jobs. They have been educated in a Pākehā system. When my daughter is 40 she will come back.”Thames, Hauraki <br />Capitalism<br />Dominant culture<br />
  7. 7. Sharing stories<br />Tell us about your experience/s of how easy or hard it is to live in New Zealand in your culture<br />We are asking you to share your stories today so that we can advocate for social change. We will not include any personal names in our reporting or advocacy. However, cultural groups will be named in general terms. We will check again at the end of the session your consent for telling these stories in our advocacy. <br />
  8. 8. Concepts of culture<br />Culture can be understood as the way in which a group of people live together: <br />the way they socialise; <br />the food they grow, prepare, and eat; <br />the location – geography, climate, community, and neighbourhood in which they live; <br />the work that is available and who does different forms of work; <br />the systems of law, education and religion; and <br />the beliefs and ways of thinking about the world they live in and the world outside.<br />Culture informs the daily lives of people. <br />Culture is the framework for how people live their lives or come to understand the world about them (Black, 2010, p. 18-19). <br />
  9. 9.
