Friday 2nd June – Monday 5th June
E te whānau o Ngāi Tahu huri noa i te rohe Arowhenua, tēnā koutou.
Mariki ana kā roimata o Aoraki, rere atu ki kā tai o Mahaanui. Tērā kā pākihi hāroa o te kāhu, e aro ki kā whenua o Tarahaoa, o hua te kerekere ana ko te rehe e!
He tono tēnei ki a koutou ko ō koutou whānau kia uru mai ki Manawa Hou.
Ngāi Tahu teenagers give Manawa Hou a go!!!! Arowhenua is hosting and we want you to return to Te Hapa o Niu Tireni.
A four day hīkoi has been designed to meet the needs of rangatahi - explore your Ngāi Tahu identity, investigate the caves our tupuna used and tiki-tour around the Ngāi Tahu takiwā on a road trip to Aoraki. Haere mai koutou, the flash new whare is ready for you to hang out in, so you can join us and connect with your identity and other rangatahi.
The next Manawa Hou hīkoi is hosted by Kāti Huirapa ki Arowhenua Papatipu Runanga. Expect lots of activity - inter-marae touch, kapa haka challenges and total teenage time. All while learning the kōrero of the rohe.
Each Manawa Hou is unique because the itinerary is designed by the hosting Papatipu Rūnanga (i.e. Arowhenua) and supported by a group of tuākana (older rangatahi).
If you, your whānau, or friends are eligible for Manawa Hou and wish to attend, simply fill out the application form and return it to us on or before 12pm, Friday 12th May.
We welcome applications from rangatahi who are a registered member of Ngāi Tahu | 15 – 18 years of age | have a passion for learning about their Ngāi Tahutanga and are willing to give everything a go.
