On Monday 21 February 2022 Te Kotahitanga o Te Atiawa delivered its first of four online Taranaki Mounga wānanga. This was a way for our Te Atiawa uri to learn more about their connection to our tupuna mounga, Koro Taranaki.
Delivered by our Chair Liana Poutu, Jamie Tuuta, Hemi Sundgren and Anaru Wilkie, the first wānanga covered topics including:
– A reflection on our history
– Te haerenga mai o Pukeonaki | The journey of our tupuna
– Te Kāhui Mounga | Who are the people of the Kāhui mounga
– Tokomaru | The arrival of Tokomaru waka, the cargo and our people of Tokomaru
Below is the recording of our first wānanga.
