Wānanga shares Waikato ways
Waikato Tainui is offering a wānanga in south Auckland later this month so its people who take on cultural advisory roles with government agencies are singing from the same song sheet.
Organiser Teteira Rawiri says the wānanga starts at the Manukau Institute of Technology marae in Otara on Friday November 30 and includes attending the Waikare Poukai on the Sunday.
"Government departments are wanting different services around the cultural practices for te ao Māori so the wananga was initiated around helping our people, those that live here in Tāmaki, those that go out and do the mahi so that we are working together and know what we’re doing," he says.
People are encouraged to bring electronic recording equipment so they can have their own record of the information and histories that will be shared.
