Kawe mate, an intrinsic element in the healing process

by Te Ao - Māori News

Our poukai is only 4 weeks away as a new record number of 810 new community cases of COVID are reported in New Zealand today.  The figure today has almost doubled on the last reported number of cases. Our builders continue with the new ablution block in Taku Hiahia, the installation of fire emergency equipment in the wharenui as well as the new drainage and sewerage systems for the marae. While King Tuheitia cancelled poukai in February, we're on standby for his decision about poukai in March.

In the meantime, let's take a moment to reflect on the legacy Uncle Meto left us in this interview with Te Ao - Māori News prior to the opening of our wharekai, Te Maru o Hikairo in 2019.

E te tuakana, e Meto moe mai rā i tōu moenga roa.

Ngāti Hikairo represents: Damian Porima plays his first gig with Katchafire

“I played my first gig with Katchafire at the weekend in Malborough to an audience of around 2,000 people.  I was a little nervous because it was my first outing with the band.  I had a month to learn all of their waiata, as well as two 5 hour practice sessions with the band and that, sealed it for me to know what I was doing.”
