Wānanga at Urenui 22-25 June 2015

Tēnā e te iti, tēnā e te rahi, he pānui tēnei hei whakamōhio atu ngā whakaritenga mō te wānanga ka tū ki te marae o Ngāti Mutunga, arā, ko Urenui Marae. Ka timata tēnei wānanga hei te Rāhina 22 o Pipiri tae atu ki te Rāpare 25 o Pipiri. Ko te pūtake o te wānanga nei, ko te ako i tō tātou reo, ko te whakarongo ki ngā kōrero-o-mua, me te ako I ngā waiata me ngā karakia o Taranaki. He wānanga motuhake tēnei hei whakatipu i te kākano, kia puāwai ai, kia hua ai, kia pakari tō ake Ngāti Mutungatanga. Hei te mutunga o tēnei wānanga ka nuku kotahi tātou ki te rā whakahirahira o tō tātou tupuna rongonui, arā, ko Tā Māui Pōmare kia whakanui e ngā rā e rua ki Ōwae Marae ki Waitara. Nō reira, nau mai e te tini, haere mai e te rau.

This notice is to provide an overview of the wānanga that will be held at Urenui marae. It will start on Monday the 22nd of June through to Thursday 25th of June. The main purpose of this wānanga is to learn reo, listen to relevant historical information and learn waiata and karakia pertaining to Taranaki. This is an important wānanga that will grow the seed of learning our language and culture and more importantly our identity that relates to Wharekauri. After this wānanga we all travel together to an important occasion for our ancestor Sir Māui Pōmare to participate in this event for the following two days held at Ōwae Marae in Waitara. We welcome all of our whānau to attend this wānanga.
