Project information: We have partnered with two creatives who are Taranaki Tuturu Kapahaka practitioners. We want a sense of belonging for all our children in the Whakaahurangi Rohe. We have established a Kahui Ako (COL) - Kahui Ako o Taranaki Mohoao (Central Taranaki COL). We want all our tamariki to have a sense of belonging to our mana whenua. We want our tamariki and whānau to feel a belonging to the local marae, learning tikanga and kawa while at Whakaahurangi Marae. They will learn the Pakiwaitara and history of Ruaputahanga and show their learning through Waiata and Haka. 

They will perform various activities in the Whakaahurangi rohe (including marae, district council, Te wiki o Te Reo Māori, marae kaumatua performances): 

  • Marae based kapa haka - connecting to the marae 
  • Taranaki Tuturu Haka, Waiata, Ngeri 
  • Taranaki History - in the waiata and haka 
  • Perform to our community on the Marae (Whakaahurangi) 
  • Building connections with mana whenua (Whakaahurangi Marae), hapū (Ahi Tahi) and iwi (Ngāti Ruanui) 
  • Be proud learning the rich history of Whakaahurangi
