I am puzzled that there are people who are trying to make money out of my culture who have european names. How does one come from Switzerland and gain the right to hold a Maori healing ceremony on Te Waka a Maui. Uekaha should know better. Tikanga Maori is neither anthroposophic nor is it steiner based custom. Just another way for people to make money from our culture. I’m sure they’ve justified it to themselves, but this blatant dilution of my culture by an aryan – centric philosophy steeped in aryan superiority is immoral.

Grandmother’s Healing Haka For the first time this Haka will be taught in the South Island a tour school by Ojasvin Kingi and his wife Iris from Switzerland. Both have been teaching the Haka internationally over the last years.It will take place on Friday 2 Dec 7.30 – 10.30pm Saturday 3 Dec 9.30 – 6pm Cost: $80 Also, a Healing for the Land Ritual will be offered and will take place after a shared dinner on Saturday evening at Brighton Beach.  Please consider this a very special opportunity and join us for those days (we need at least 16 people).  If interested you can google Grandmother’s HealingHaka.Phone Simoneor Uekaha on 3846081or021820 182 (Simone), 021 067 2096 (Uekaha).  Closer to the time, pamphlets and more detailed information will be shared.

Waldorf answers – More questions on Waldorf education

LOW DEGREE OF ETHNIC DIVERSITY? While there are Waldorf schools in an increasing number of countries in the world, Waldorf schools in the West do not always reflect the ethnic diversity of the countries in which they are found. In the U.S., most non-profit, independent Waldorf schools have fewer than 10% minority students. There are some notable exceptions where an independent Waldorf school may have 30% minority students and one public Waldorf school working as a charter school, the Urban Waldorf School, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has a majority of minority students. But this is still a problem not fully handled by the Waldorf movement in the West. Long lingering and deeply seated racial patterns and prejudices in parts of the U.S. has probably been one major factor making the mean income of black households in general on the order of only c. 65%, and of hispanic households in general the order of c. 70-75% of that of white households in the U.S. in 2000. These economic disparities are one central factor contributing to the low degree of ethnic diversity at independent Waldorf schools in the U.S.. The ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2002, that school vouchers do not violate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, stipulating the separation of church and state, hopefully will contribute to counteracting this inequality of income, and the development of an ethnic diversity at U.S. Waldorf schools that matches that of American society.
