A wānanga focussed on inspiring leadership, entrepreneurship and kaitiakitanga within Aotearoa and across the motu has helped to inspire future leaders in Mataatua.
In June, members of Mataatua Movement, Anituatua Black and Waimihi Rota-Matchitt, flew to Wellington where they experienced Festival For The Future for the very first time.
