Waitangi Day commemorations 2024 at Te Rau Aroha Marae

Te Rūnaka o Awarua invites Ngāi Tahu whānau to commemorate Waitangi Day 2024 at Te Rau Aroha Marae in Motupōhue Bluff on Tuesday 6 February.

Te Rau Aroha Marae hosts the Ngāi Tahu Waitangi Day commemorations every third year in recognition of its historic significance as one of three places where Ngāi Tahu tūpuna signed the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840.

The commemoration will begin with a pōwhiri at 10am, followed by formal speeches and presentations. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

There will be stalls for whānau and activities to entertain tamariki during the day.
