Tēnā koutou katoa, we would like to share with you our up and coming event celebrating 139 years since our Pōua Te Maiharoa (Waitaha) led Te Heke The Migration from Temuka to Ōmārama in 1877.

To honour him, we are going to re-trace the footsteps of our tīpuna and their return journey from Ōmārama to Te Pā o Korotuaheka. Our heke will begin on Sunday 10 January 2016 at Ahuriri River, Ōmārama.

We will retrace their travels of 1879, journeying down the majestic Waitaki Valley over the following four days, arriving at Te Pā o Korotuaheka on 14 January.

We would like to extend an open invitation to you and your whānau to join Aunty Sissie, our whānau and friends on Te Heke Korotuaheka 2016.

If you would like to join us and there is a $10 registration fee and $20 pp. per day for kai. We would appreciate if all those wanting to attend could register by 1 December.
