Toi Tangata Hui-a-Tau 2016

Notice of Event: Toi Tangata Hui-a-Tau 2016

Toi Tangata is proud to announce the Hui-ā-Tau 2016 on the 16th-18th February in Otaki. Toi Tangata are leaders in positive health and the art of human potential. The annual event is a signature feature of the Māori nutrition and physical activity sector and is set to be an exciting and inspirational event with a range of thought-provoking korero, and interactive workshops. Participants will be challenged to consider the relevance and potential for the concept of 'Nukuroa: Journeys of Māori Resilience’ in the context of new and current initiatives that promote purposeful physical activity and optimal nutrition within Māori communities.

Māori leaders in nutrition and physical activity are gathering to set the direction for Māori health and outline local community initiatives that increase access, achieve equity and improve health outcomes for Māori. Recent policy initiatives such as the Childhood Obesity Plan and Healthy Families require a Te Ao Māori response as these policies target Māori; Toi Tangata Hui-a-Tau 2016 is the platform and opportunity to influence and drive mātauranga Māori leadership in a united effort for better Māori health gains.

About the Hui
The Hui-ā-Tau provides an opportunity to connect Iwi and health promoters, Māori academics, tertiary students, community leaders, youth workers, independent businesses and health practitioners from across the motu where kaupapa Māori practices will be promoted, shared and developed. This Hui-a-Tau is taking place on the 16-18th of February 2014 at Ngā Purapura, Te Wānanga o Raukawa in Ōtaki and has a focus on Māori nutrition and physical activity issues.

The Hui-ā-Tau will showcase a range of innovative solutions that are effectively engaging Māori communities and producing positive health outcomes. Throughout the hui ā-tau participants can expect to learn more about the role of the Māori resilience in developing a more Māori based experience of nutrition, physical activity and greater health and well-being.

Building leadership capabilities in physical activity and nutrition will also be a hot topic at the hui ā-tau with speakers from a range of disciplines coming to share their views. The hui will end with a day spent discussing the different knowledge pathways and platforms available to progress kaupapa Māori approaches in health.

Some of our speakers include: Dr Farah Palmer, Trevor Shailor, Nathan Durie, Dr Ihirangi Heke and Dr David Rees, Helen Leahy, Martin Dutton and Louise McIntyre (Ministry of Health), Sharon Pihema.
