The next whakapapa wānaka will be held on 2-3 October at Puketeraki Marae. It will run to our usual format of starting with kai around 6pm on the Friday and finishing around 3pm on the Saturday.

The main kaupapa of the wānaka will be continuing to advance the kōrero of whakapapa to be included in the interior of our wharenui, Huirapa.

Do your best to come back with stories and information about the tīpuna who best represents your whānau whakapapa in this area.
We will be working within the guidelines given at the May rūnaka general meeting. The stories we utilise in the development of the artwork for the wharenui and on the marae must be able to be cross-referenced and confirmed through verifiable sources.

Matapura and James will be doing their own ‘homework’ based on the whakapapa that has been put forward at the previous wānaka as they hope to advance the kōrero at the October wānaka. Please contact the office to register your interest in attending and to ensure you receive the information you need to attend.
