Kupu hou

Namunamuā – delicious flavour. I saw this one on the blackboard in the café at Te Whare o Te Waipounamu, 15 Show Place, Addington, Ōtautahi. Ka mau te wehi.

Kia ora whānau o Ngāi Tahu, winter was ushered in with snow to sea level and flooding along the Otago Peninsula and other suburbs such as South Dunedin.

The Highcliff Road suffered really bad slips and is now closed for some time to through traffic.
If you are travelling to Ōtākou Marae in not so good conditions you might like to keep in contact with the rūnaka office on 03 478 0352 or the Dunedin City Council on 03 477 4000 for up-to-date road conditions for the Otago Peninsula.

Museum Aotearoa conference

Ōtākou recently hosted the Museum Aotearoa Conference 2015 in brilliant sunshine. A pōwhiri/welcome was given to our manuhiri by Tahu Pōtiki, then later when MP Maggie Barry arrived, Edward Ellison extended a mihi to which she gave an engaging speech to the conference-goers. The conference was an overwhelming success with interesting kōrero from distinguished speakers, fine food and a great bunch of people.

Tītī season

The tītī yield this season was not high. Lucky you, if you got a feed.
