How can we ensure the health of our people and culture into the future? In this workshop stream you’ll explore how Pūrākau (narratives) and mātauranga (knowledge) inform a Māori world view. The knowledge embedded in ancient narratives provides continually relevant teachings as to how we might understand environment, culture, people and place in te ao hurihuri (the changing world).

MEET THE FACILITATORS INVOLVED IN RUNNING THIS WORKSHOP STREAM
Te Ataakura in many ways represents the new face of Māori Education. Te reo Māori is her first language, she has also been raised within a community of committed Māori educationalists.
Te Rā’s passions lie with te reo Māori, its sounds, expressions, metaphors, histories and knowledge, along with tikanga Māori and te ao Māori, the Māori world. He looks forward to sharing his knowledge and experiences with you.
