Ngāi Tahu Road Shows 2017

Ngāi Tahu Road Shows are being held throughout Te Ika-a-Māui and Australia from May to September this year. These are an opportunity for Ngāi Tahu whānau to come together and celebrate Ngāi Tahutanga and whanaungatanga, learn about the Settlement, find out about their whakapapa (genealogy) and hear about the support and benefits Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu can provide whānau.

The Whakapapa unit, and Whai Rawa (savings scheme) Kotahi Mano Kāika (Māori language) and Ngāi Tahu Funds (cultural funding) teams will have stalls set up to assist whānau and answer any questions.

There will be kai, giveaways and activities for the whole whānau, and some merchandise will be available for purchase on the day. Bring cash or credit card – there will be no EFTPOS facilities.
