Kia Kūrapa ki Kaikōura

31 August - 2 September

Kia Kūrapa is a marae based, weekend long wānanga aimed at beginners and intermediate language learners. No matter what level you have Kia Kūrapa creates a safe, supportive and friendly learning environment for all ages.

Kia Kūrapa brings people together and supports their language development through utilising a diverse range of techniques from kēmu (games) to kapa haka (Māori performing arts) that connects people to the language in a fun, interesting way.

These wānanga are held approximately 3-4 times each year. If you are just starting out Kia Kūrapa are a great way to build your confidence, increase your knowledge and understanding of te reo Māori, and connect with people who are on the same waka (canoe) as you or can push you to grow more in your language journey.
