HE AHA

A virtual wānanga led by mātanga pūoro sharing the pūrākau of "The Early Battles" and kōrero about racism from the perspective of atua pūoro Māori.

Listen to pūrākau Māori through the eyes and voices of our atua pūoro Māori.

Let taonga pūoro sing you the wings to take flight while our tātai whetū, Rikki Solomon guides you through the stars as navigated by our tīpuna.

Use taonga pūoro to connect you directly to your own atuatanga through music, through kōrero, through all the layers of te pō and into te ao mārama.

You will make and use your own taonga pūoro to navigate and help shift through the intense emotions experienced as we battle racism in Aotearoa.

Delivery: delivered in 2 components: a short online component followed by a live 5 hour zoom wānanga
Ngā Mātanga

Kei a te pō te waiatatanga o ngā atua ki Te Ao Mārama, ki Te Ao Tūroa, Tihei Mauri Ora!

It was in the night that the atua sang the world into existence
