Mana Rangatahi ki Kaiteriteri

Monday, January 14 to Saturday, January 19, 2019

Registrations are now open for the summer edition of our flagship Mana Rangatahi programme.

mana logo2018

Now in its fifth year, Mana Rangatahi is nationally recognised as a leader in cultural development and revitalisation. But more than that, it’s a fun and rewarding way for rangatahi to connect with their iwi - and also to one another.

The next wānanga will take place in Kaiteriteri from Monday, January 14 to Saturday, January 19. It’s open to all registered iwi members aged 12 to 24, however, younger rangatahi will be considered upon parental request.

If you haven’t been to a wānanga before, that’s OK – we understand that all our rangatahi are at different stages of their cultural journey and make sure that we are there alongside them, from the very start. Perhaps you or a family member has taken part in a Mana Rangatahi wānanga before – we’d love to have you back.

January’s wānanga will have a focus on waka ama and ancestral games in addition to core cultural learning and experiences. Spaces are limited so register now to avoid missing out.
