Tuna Wānanga

Fishing for tuna (eel) is an incredibly significant part of the Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō cultural identity. This wānanga will facilitate the transfer of intergenerational cultural knowledge, as well as combining Mātauranga Māori with western science. We will be focusing on the close relationship and history our people share with the Nelson Lakes and tuna. This truly unique wānanga is a key part of our cultural revitalisation strategy and we are so excited to share this kaupapa with you.

When?       7pm Friday 3rd – 4pm Saturday 4th March 2023
Where?      Lake Rotoiti
Who?          Open to all iwi members & whānau


Accommodation at Lake Rotoiti is limited for this wānanga, so please let us know if you are interested in attending so we can confirm we have a bed for you. There is also the option of just coming for the Saturday. Please indicate whether you are coming for the whole wānanga or just for the Saturday.


Registrations close on Friday 24th February 2023.


We look forward to seeing you there!
