In a bid to promote New Southward Policy, the Council of Indigenous Peoples launched [Scheme of Cultural and Educational Exchanges in New Zealand for Indigenous Students from Universities and Colleges] in 2017. The 21 excellent indigenous students from universities and colleges were selected in the Scheme and led by the Council from Nov. 20th to 27th visiting New Zealand for mutual communications with respect to the education, language and culture of the Indigenous Peoples. On Nov. 20th, the departure date, the Council held a trooping ceremony at 16F square of the building where the Council located. At the trooping ceremony, the Chairman of the Council Icyang‧Parod granted the flag of the Council to Division Head of Education and Culture Division, Chen, Kun-Sheng and extended his best regards for the visiting members to achieve the purpose of cultural and educational exchanges during their stay in New Zealand.
Furthermore, the exchange group will have opportunity to participate in the seminars concerning Treaty of Waitangi, Maori language as well as cultures planned by the visiting units to reinforce the knowledge about the Indigenous Peoples of New Zealand, hoping to create the dialogues and idea exchanges in regard to Indigenous Peoples of both nations.
