Celebrating iwi success at Anei Tata E!

Update Rērere Kōrero

At the end of September, Te Pātaka Whaioranga Pou Tohu Mātāmua, Patsy Kainuku (Tūhoe) and I (Trevor Simpson) headed to Anei Tata E! to listen in on the different approaches whānau Māori are using to support the health and wellbeing of their communities.

Anei Tata E! was held in Te Pae Tata – Ohakune and hosted by Ngāti Rangi as a celebration of iwi success.

Attending this symposium was a great opportunity to share space and time with Māori and see initiatives in that rohe that support the health and wellbeing of our people.

We want to give a huge mihi to Ngāti Rangi Pou Ārahi, Helen Leahy and Ngāti Rangi for hosting us. It was a successful event with engaging guest speakers, inspiring kōrero and motivating feedback.

The key theme of the conference was Anei Tata E which means, ‘Though it may seem so far away, it is in fact in the cup of our hands, it is right here’. 

The theme celebrates the success of Ngā Waihua o Paerangi, four years after the Ngāti Rangi Claims Settlement Act 2019, as well as being positive about the new phase ahead.

Te Pātaka Whaioranga was proud to sponsor and attend this event.
