Everyone is invited to attend our Hāhi Rātana wānanga being held over the weekend of 9 -11 December at Tuahiwi Marae.

At the wānanga you will learn about the history of Rātana, including the places Rātana visited in Te Waipounamu as well as the kaupapa of the Hāhi. Also for those who participate in whakamoemiti there will be training workshops available.

The wānanga will also provide attendees with the opportunity to share ideas and interact with one another.

We are looking to have numbers sorted as soon as possible so if you could please register your interest by joining our Facebook group: Te Hāhi Rātana ki Te Waipounamu, that would be great. The wānanga will start with a pōwhiri at 11am on Friday 9 December.

We’re hoping to find every mōrehu following Rātana Church, as well as anyone wishing to come along so that we have representation from across Te Waipounamu.

The facilitators for the wānanga will be Āpotoro Takiwa Kereama Pene of Auckland along with Āpotoro Rehita Daniel Nehemia.
