Taharora Marae
Waipiro Bay

Nau Mai, Haere Mai
Te Whanau o Taharora

Kia Ora everyone.
This wananga is planned to bring us all together, to reminisce, to meet relations we have never met, to form friendships, and to be together in kinship but most importantly, to impart to our younger generations the knowledge of those who are no longer with us.
To achieve this goal we need your support.

Some of the things that are being planned for the two weeks are:

- Looking at the original site of Taharora marae
- Why the marae was moved to its present day site.
- What our connection to the marae and area is.
- Looking at local urupa.
- Visiting other pa sites around Waipiro Bay and learning how we are connected to them. (KieKie, Iritekura, Akuaku etc….)
- What our connections are to Ruakiwi and the Camp and day trip there; visit urupa.
- Learn some Ngati Porou waiata
- Whakapapa
- What is Tikanga?
- What is Kawa?
- What is Hauora/Rongoa (Maori medicine) –how to identify native trees and plants for medicinal use – how to use them
- Tuuhono? Why should we register with our iwi? By doing so how does this help our iwi and individual marae?
- Porourangi - who is he and how do we connect to him? Trip to marae’s; Place of birth / death.
- Trip up Mt Hikurangi
- Christmas / New Years dinners.
- Story night and Photos on the walls & share personal photos and stories (optional)
- Sports day ( Pa Wars ) 3rd Jan 2005. This is a day where all the marae’s in the surrounding areas compete against one another in different sporting events.
- Weaving with flax.

The Wananga is a means for learning from our elders and holding on to our Maoritanga….. and a way of making money for our Marae. For each participant who attends who is over 16yrs the Marae receive $100 per person.

The wananga are run under the umbrella of Te Awanuiarangi Whare Wananga based in Whakatane. However it is ourselves who do all the planning and delivery of the wananga and Awanuiarangi provide the funding which is attained by the Education sector of the Government.

We hope that this time will be a relaxing one for everyone where we can gather in a place of our tipuna that have past, to get away from the hustle and bustle of our fast paced lives and just be together.

So gather your families, cameras and sports shoes and come and have a great time.

NAU MAI HAERE MAI

P.S…. WHANAU, Please let us know if you are interested in attending and the number of ADULTS 16 years and older, and children who are attending.
It will not cost you and your Whanau anything to attend, all we ask our Whanau for is a bit of their TIME.

We are currently involved in making a booklet about TAHARORA MARAE and we are also trying to add as much Whakapapa as we can from all the Families. We will be starting from PUKUAHI = MIHI TUNGIA. They had two sons RIWAI PAKERAU & HAKI HOKO PAURA PAKERAU we are hoping to gather information on all their descendants to this present day.
