The second whānau hui will be held on Sunday 26 February at the 24d Marine Parade, Petone, Lower Hutt (the Wellington Tenths Trust offices). Following suggestions given by whānau last year, the programme will include te reo practise, waiata practise, kai and a session that will be covering some of the issues currently occurring for Ngāi Tahu, such as the election of the Kaiwhakahaere.

We hope to also have support from the office there. Dates planned for other whānau hui this yearare Sunday 28 May and Sunday 27 August. Whānau are encouraged to contact each other via our Facebook page. If you are not on the page, please join: Ngāi Tahu ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara; and feel free to invite the whānau to join you in activities. Contact Karen Coutts on 027 365 3993 or email [email protected]
