NGĀ MANU KŌRERO
Firstly a big mihi to all of our rangatahi who stood and supported at the national Manu Kōrero competitions held in Wellington recently. A special mention to our Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō rangatahi Kowhai de Thierry, David de Thierry and Ayesha Hohepa who represented Te Tau Ihu rohe. Ko koutou ngā pūkōrero o te iwi.
We will depart for our final wānanga of the year as this pānui is being published. The wānanga is being held at Lake Rotoiti and we have had a great response from whānau wanting to attend and learn more about their Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tōtanga.
Kiley Nepia is travelling down earlier to do some cultural training with DoC prior to the wānanga.
