Since the ACANZP established the three tkanga-system, the church has periodically reviewed its constitution.
Comparing the ACANZP experience to Indigenous self-determination in the Anglican Church of Canada, Pikaahu believes that Canada has "a far better model for an Indigenous church," noting that while New Zealand has overlapping diocesan boundaries of Pakeha (European-descended settlers in New Zealand) and Maori, Canada largely does not.
Describing the ACANZP as an "inspiration to us in many, many ways," he stresses that while the church in Aotearoa-New Zealand-Polynesia has a parallel structure, "our hope is wanting us to be more a part of the national church."
