Whānau Heru and Hapū Māmā Wānanga a success

Second Whānau Heru and Hapū Māmā Wānanga a success for all

Alongside Tūwharetoa ki Kawerau Hauora, Plunket, Hapainga and Te Whatu Ora Bay of Plenty, TPOOM helped guide a series of Mataatua whānau in traditional knowledge and practices around hapūtanga.

Ko te Whaea te takere o te waka

Mothers are like the hull of a canoe, they are the heart of the family

Alongside Tūwharetoa ki Kawerau Hauora, Plunket, Hapainga and Te Whatu Ora Bay of Plenty, TPOOM helped guide a series of Mataatua whānau in traditional knowledge and practices around hapūtanga.

Our whānau harvested harakeke, weaving their whakapapa, mātauranga, aroha and manaakitanga into wahakura that they’ll use to sleep safely with their pēpi.

Learning, creating a safe space, whakawhanaungatanga and celebrating what it means to be Māori, are some of the practices our whānau involved in our second Whānau Heru and Hapū Māmā Wānanga got to experience.

Thank you to all our Māmā, Pāpā and their whānau who attended this wānanga – we wish you and your whānau all the best with your hapūtanga.
