Hui-ā-tau 2018

24 November @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ka taka te wā, ka huri te tau, ka pihi ko ngā tupu hōu , ka Kana e
Ka taka te wā, ka huri te tau, ka hoki nga mahara, ka tangi e
Ka taka te wā, ka huri te tau, ka piri tahi tou, ko Tahu e

Kei ngā mana, kei ngā reo, kei ngā kārangatanga maha o Tahu Potiki, tēnei te karanga, tēnei te powhiri ki a koutou katoa kia hoki mai ki te takiwā o Ngāti Irakehu, Ngai Tarewa. Tēnei te rau tāwhiri, tēnei te rau aroha e rere kau nei kia hoki hoki mai koutou ki te Hui a Tau o Tahu e!

Hoki mai rā
Haere mai rā
Tēnei tātou, tēnei te hokinga mai

This year Hui-ā-Tau marks 20 years since the iwi gathered at Ōnuku for The Crown’s Apology and will celebrate the strides Ngāi Tahu taken since this momentous occasion in 1998.

For many of us it is also a time to reflect and remember those who have passed over in the ensuing two decades since settlement. Although they are no longer with us we carry them with us as we gather – Te Hokinga Mai.

Te Rūnanga o Ōnuku, in conjunction with Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, invite you to attend Hui-ā-Tau 2018, which will be held at Ōnuku Marae, on Saturday 24 November at 10am.

Celebrating Karaweko

Following Hui-ā-Tau, Te Runanga o Ōnuku will also acknowledge those who had a hand in building the Whare Tipuna, Karaweko. Join with them to celebrate Karaweko, the many stories that are etched into its pou and the countless memories woven into its walls.

Pre-registering Questions

Whānau will be able to phone, email or text questions through on the day, but given that we can get more questions than can be answered in one session, we encourage you to register your question so that it can be given priority. You can register your questions by sending them to [email protected] or 0800 KAI TAHU (0800 524 8248).

Car Parking and Transportation

Transportation to and from the marae will be available from the parking area at Akaroa Area School, 141 Rue Jolie, as Onuku Road Will be closed to traffic during Hui-ā-Tau.
