Wise Wāhine Speak: four amazing wāhine Māori speakers in one evening!

How often do you get the chance to hear four amazing wāhine Māori speakers in one night?” said Marama Davidson, spokesperson, Te Wharepora Hou. This wāhine Maori community group has teamed up with Auckland Women’s Centre and Living Wage Aotearoa to provide an event where you can do just that, Wise Wāhine Speak.

On Thursday 24 July at the Clendon Park School Marae, Kelly Henare-Heke, Bianca Ranson, Jeanine Tamati-Paratene and Alicia Heremaia will talk about exciting projects in their communities. The topics up for discussion include connecting whānau and communities through Kapa Haka; celebrating outdoor adventure tourism based on Maori tikanga, inspiring generations to speak Te Reo Maori; and how achieving a living wage will help reduce inequality and poverty. You will feel inspired, informed and excited by the knowledge they share!

This event is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate some of the inspirational work being done by wāhine Maori in our communities, work that is often ignored by the main stream media” said Ms Davidson.

Ends.

NB This event was to be held at the Manurewa Marae; however the venue has now been changed to Clendon Park School Marae, Manurewa.
