Otherwise, the quickest way to share those stories is to include them here, so spend a bit of time getting to know which Taiao kaupapa are top priority to us at the moment.
We love the ngahere, and so do Pekapeka-tou-poto (tiny Bats)15g whānau that’s only three teaspoons, that’s less than a can of coke. A ‘Contractors Workshop for Puketi Omahuta Forest’ was held earlier this month so get in touch if you’re passionate about pest control. Tania and some others are working on a collab to provide jobs in the ngahere – all designed to protect these little fullas.
This time of year also marks the season for harvesting. Featured on our fb page is an interesting read from Reubin Taipari Equinox post. Check out what he has to say about Ngahuru and the natural order of how our tūpuna lived versus the gregorian calender.
Our first taitamariki Te Noho Taiao o Ngāpuhi is being run at Moria Marae, Whirinaki from 29th March to 1st April. Just another day in the office immersed in the kaupapa to bring 50 taitamariki together to share the matauranga Māori of Taiao. An environmental wananga introducing elements of pūtaiao encompassed with reo Maori we hope to nuture what is natural to our taitamariki in their role as kaitiakitanga. Registrations are full for this wā nanga but not to worry this is the first of many. Keep an eye out for dates of our next Te Noho Taiao o Ngāpuhi coming soon.
