It was an impressive turnout of more than 70 people who turned up at different times to our first Ngati Porou Reo Wananga 2019, held at Horouta Marae on 2 and 3 March. The focus was on learning and practicing whaikorero, karanga and waiata and then delivering everything we’d learnt at a ‘mock’ live powhiri. Frightening! Exhilarating! Highly emotional. Definitely an experience not to miss. How else can you practice what you’ve learnt if not in a safe and secure environment of supportive and caring whanau. Empowering! Here’s some of the feedback:

“Ka mau te wehi!  This wananga was awesome! Fantastic! Kaiako were on point! Welcoming, knowledgeable, clear instructions throughout, beautiful and relevant Korero, inclusive.  Made us all feel welcome and safe.  LOVED the kai Karanga session – please make it longer!”
