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).

Waipapa Poukai Update

 Kiingi Tuheitia Pootatau Te Wherowhero VII has cancelled all poukai in March. 

Kaumātua, Te Papi Cunningham says Waipapa marae has never missed a poukai celebration in the last 131 years.   We would like to honour our poukai again this year because it also marks the birth of King Tāwhiao who was born 200 years ago in 1822.
