Te Ao Maori - Mana Tahuna

Te Ao Maori

We lead Tāhuna in celebrating and cultivating Te Ao Māori.

We want all Rakatahi Māori in Tāhuna to be connected and actively participating in Te Ao Māori.

Ka pū te ruha, ka hao te rakatahi - Te Hoeroa (Steering mechanism of a waka) is our dedicated rakatahi and whānau hub located in Tāhuna. We provide spaces for whānau to safely be Māori in Tāhuna.

We have dedicated programmes to help Māori connect to our culture through whakapapa, waiata, toi, pūrakau and wānanga.
