Waikato Tainui

The Heritage & Identity Team has been working with Water Safety NZ to co-design a Kairuku Programme for Marae.

All Marae take pride in being able to provide their signature dishes at important events such as Poukai. A range of research acknowledges the importance of traditional kai in improving the nutritional health of kaumaatua.  Access to traditional kai improves the mental and spiritual health of kaumaatua and has a unique ability to trigger positive memories which have also been acknowledged as a deterrent for neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc).
