Learning more about Te Ao Maori

Manukau City Council is hosting a Maori language and culture session on Saturday 27th September at 10.30am at Manurewa Library.

This is the second Saturday session held to help promote its Maori collection and to provide an avenue for people to learn more about Maori culture.

Children are invited to attend the Mahi a Rehia Whai (string games) activities at 10.30am, with a session for adults to follow at 11.30am on Kapa Haka (performing arts).

The sessions are free and all are welcome to attend.

“We received excellent feedback on the Marae protocol session held in August,” says organiser and Maori liaison assistant Corin Meroiti. “We will continue to seek feedback from people attending the sessions and attempt to co-ordinate speakers and activities that they are interested in. At the next session in October, Rikii Bennett will be speaking about “Te Rongoa Maori and the Maori traditional use of the forest.”
