Manawa Hou

Manawa Hou ki Koukourārata
Ngāti Huikai

July 9th-12th 2018

(Applications closed 5 June 2018)

Check back soon as another Manawa Hou may run later in 2018

E te whānau whānui o Ngāi Tahu huri noa i te motu, tēnā koutou.

Manawa Hou is a kaupapa designed to give rangatahi Ngāi Tahu an opportunity to explore their Ngāi Tahu identity and takiwā, all while meeting cool people and having fun!

In July we’re heading to Koukourārata, the home of Ngāti Huikai. While there we will learn about our tīpuna, Huikai – who he was, where he came from and what he stood for. Our hīkoi also falls during the rising of Matariki for the Māori new year. We will be exploring what this means, and we’ll have an expert in astronomy with us to share her knowledge.

Applications for July have closed, however check out the info below for who Manawa Hou is designed for and if it sounds like something you’re keen on, then send us an email so we can keep you informed of upcoming hīkoi and events.

Mā wai? Who is this for?

We’re looking for rangatahi who:

  • Are a registered member of Ngāi Tahu (we can help if you’re not yet registered)
  • Are 15-18 years of age (Y11-13 at school)
  • Have a passion for learning about their Ngāi Tahutanga
  • Are willing to give everything a go
  • Can get themselves to Christchurch and then back home

Ki hea? Mā hea? Where is it and how do I get there?

Manawa Hou hīkoi are held on Ngāi Tahu marae throughout Te Wai Pounamu with vans available to transport rangatahi to and from Christchurch before and after each hīkoi.

The on-course costs for this hīkoi are entirely covered by Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, with travel to and from Christchurch the participants/whānau responsibility.

If you would like to nominate a rangatahi to attend Manawa Hou, then please forward them the link to apply directly to them.
