Te Aka Matua

Te Aka Matua – a series of videos on parenting and child development

Ki ngā kaipoipoi o ō tātou taonga matahīapo o te iwi, tēnei te reo o mihi ki a koutou katoa – to the nurturers of our most precious treasures of our tribe, my warmest greetings to you all.

Part of the kaupapa of the Oranga team at Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu is to support the development of the youngest members of our iwi – our pēpi. In keeping with that we have prepared a series of three-minute videos by Nathan Wallis around parenting and child development. Nathan is a neuro-science educator who specialises in child development and the brain. These resources are designed to be accessible to busy parents.

These videos share helpful tips and knowledge to support the role we have as kaitiaki or guardians of our most precious treasures.

We hope you find these resources useful.
