Nau mai haere mai. For adults and children alike, enjoy some modern-day storytelling as we explore our Tipuna stories with Te Aroha Paenga and Wiremu Ruru.

Our primary school-aged children are already discovering this magical collection of stories in the classroom and gaining confidence in our founding stories. Now, thanks to the team at Te Runanga of Turanganui a Kiwa, the rest of the family can enjoy learning about significant ancestors of this region, as well as the place names and landmarks of Turanganui-a-Kiwa.

This session we focus on the arrival of the Horouta waka and its captains Paoa and Kiwa.

About Tuia 250 ki Tūranga:
Tuia 250 ki Tūranga is about people and place, what brought us together, what challenges us still, and how we are weaving our differing cultures and values into a future we will be proud to leave for our grand-children.

Tuia 250 ki Tūranga actively explores the stories on land and at sea. We will recognise and commemorate two extraordinary voyaging traditions and cultures –each with their legacies and technologies, opportunities and vulnerabilities.

But most importantly, Tuia 250 ki Tūranga will make room for conversations, some of them awkward, all of them vital to forging a shared future.
