Deaf Action Kaupapa / Kaupapa Mahi Turi

The Introduction:

Welcome, welcome, to all Deaf and Maori Deaf people the first acknowledgement is to the gods.


The second acknowledgement is to those we’ve lost to the night – go, go, go


The third acknowledgement is to this important subject, the self governance of all D/deaf.


Deaf Action NZ is a group for the well-being of D/deaf and their family

The Guidelines:

When we talk, we talk the correct way No stepping on other people’s ‘mana’, no swearing and no abusive talk What is the most important thing? Deaf people, Deaf people, Deaf people. Stand strong in your Deaf culture!


To you all is the power, the awesomeness and the respect! So enjoy yourself.


Advance the human rights of D/deaf/Hard of Hearing people in Aotearoa New Zealand.


Deaf Action NZ advocates and lobbies together with Deaf New Zealanders to uphold their human rights to government, public and private institutions, and service providers, disability service providers locally, nationally and internationally.


Deaf Action NZ ‘objective’ is to ensure services Deaf people use are accessible and accountable. Deaf Action is committed to the Treaty of Waitangi and to access and equality for all Deaf people in NZ.
