This October, the Tuia 250 commemorations will include a mass pōhiri for the Moananui Polynesian voyaging flotilla and our visiting dignitaries. And we want the entire community to be there.
Pōhiri 101 is a series of interactive and engaging workshops designed for absolute beginners to pōhiri. Find out:
- What pōhiri is all about and what to expect on the day.
- The roles of tangata whenua and manuhiri (the visitors).
- How you can be involved in a way that’s meaningful and comfortable.
- The answer to any question you have.
Presented by Antony Ruru from Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, we’ll have a bunch of interactive tools and takeaway information, and we’ll learn a waiata (song) so that you can add your voice to the throng.
We’re holding workshops throughout September:
Thursday September 12 – Waikanae Surf Club, 5:30pm
Saturday September 14 – HB Williams Memorial Library, 10am
Thursday September 19 - Waikanae Surf Club, 5:30pm
Saturday September 21 – HB Williams Memorial Library, 10am
Saturday September 28 - HB Williams Memorial Library, 10am
Join one, or as many as you like! There’s no cost to attend.
