Are you living outside the takiwā and interested to learn more about Ngāi Tahu and connect with your iwi? Join us at a Ngāi Tahu Road Show location near you to make connections, learn about whānau opportunities and benefits, meet some of our leaders and celebrate being Ngāi Tahu!
Following the success of our 2017 Road Shows, attended by more than 2000 whānau, in 2018 our Road Shows are focused on strengthening relationships to Ngāi Tahu whānau through Taurahere. These communities based outside the takiwā exist to help Ngāi Tahu whānau connect with our culture and identity. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet your local group!
We’re holding eight Road Shows throughout Te Ika-a-Māui and Australia between April and September. Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu will also host wānanga in Melbourne and Perth in conjunction with our Taurahere rōpū.
Regional Road Shows in Te Waipounamu will focus on the Form & Function review and give whānau an opportunity to provide feedback on the form and function of Ngāi Tahu governance.
Complete the form at the bottom of this page and receive an awesome pack of Ngāi Tahu giveaways and goodies on the day. All Ngāi Tahu whānau are welcome, whether you’re a registered member or not.
To make your registration with Whakapapa Ngāi Tahu as smooth as possible please use our online registration form. A printable PDF form is also available here. Your birth certificate will need to show your Ngāi Tahu parent, and if you are registering your children you will need to know your whakapapa registration number – you can find this out here.
Already registered but need to update your details? We’ve got a form for that too – update your whakapapa details.
If you need any assistance completing the online form please contact Shira, Jaleesa or Joseph on 0800 KAI TAHU (0800 524 8248).
