Hui A Waka | Te Arawa Waka

HUI-A-WAKA | What an awesome weekend! Being a part of Te Arawa Waka Kaihoe & Kaupapa and yesterday on board Te Au Heke Waka Taua has been an awesome experience – with only a few practices we were able to sustain and maintain the scheduled criteria given..

It is exaggerated that this kaupapa is about learning – learning how to operate a waka as one in terms of navigation, factors of weather and water, togetherness and leadership – the history and teachings instill within us mana, tino rangatiratanga, kaitiakitanga and whanaungatanga.. We did a lot of learning today, especially myself being new to this kaupapa.. To our manuhiri from Ngapuhi – Kahukura, thankyou for attending and showcasing your mahi hoe, it was a pleasure to be exposed to your expertise also – especially nga rangatahi o nga puhi..

Wrapped up with a yummy kai and a few skits and waiata, I can say we all had the best time, lots of laughs, hugs and loves!.. 

Naku noa, na Miria .. xx
