The weekend of April 5-6 was the poroporoaki of our wharekai Te Pōhā o Tohu Raumati, which ran in conjunction with our archiving hui. Many of our Ngāti Kurī whānau came together over the weekend to hear the stories of the building of our marae at Takahanga.

Archaeologist Michael Trotter, Tā Tipene O’Regan, Trevor Howse, Cliff Whiting, Tā Mark Solomon and our kaumātua told stories of the early preparation for the building of our wharenui and wharekai.
