A hui is planned for Saturday 6 November, 10am-2pm for whānau based in Wellington, the Hutt Valley and Kapiti Coast to get together. As well as whanaungatanga, there will be kōrero on Ngāi Tahutanga, practising Ngāi Tahu waiata, eating, relaxing and having fun. We are very keen to have new members especially whānau who do not usually have regular connection with Ngāi Tahu, The venue will be confirmed in next month’s Te Pānui Rūnaka as well as on our Facebook page – please sign up and keep an eye on the Facebook page.

The rōpū organising this hui are already planning further whanaungatanga hui in 2017. We are keen to have hui that you all want, to help you feel more confident in understanding Ngāi Tahutanga in a way that suits you.


Please join our Facebook page – search for Ngāi Tahu ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara. This page is the best and fastest way to communicate with us. We will be using it to let everyone know of coming events, it is also a place for you to put your ideas about connecting, and is a critical way of us communicating with each other.

A small group of us are meeting to plan setting up more whānau hui – and more than one over the remainder of 2016. We will keep you updated via the Facebook page.
