Waitangi Day – Te Ra maumahara mo Te Tiriti o Waitangi

 

Ngāti Hine Health Trust (NHHT) encourages our kaimahi to learn about Te Tiriti o Waitangi. A key component to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi lies in recognising and acknowledging Māori as tangata whenua and the indigenous people of the whenua Nu Tireni, Aotearoa New Zealand, affirmed and acknowledged in Te Tiriti o Waitangi. The values, beliefs and traditions of Māori as whānau, hapū and iwi are fundamental to Māori identity and Te Tiriti o Waitangi is a guiding document for the Trust.

On February 6, 2020, NHHT lead the coordination of a collaborative Whanau space where providers and community roopu supported the kaupapa at the Sports field of the Waitangi Grounds. The aim of the space was to encourage;

  • Whanaungatanga and be part of the commemorations and provide wellbeing info for whanau to access.
  • Manaakitanga by providing services to entertain and manaaki whanau on the day.
  • Kotahitanga by contributing towards a collaborated approach with other providers.

With around 20 other wellbeing service providers as part of the site area, the day saw promotions, mirimiri, smoothie Bikes, a Kaumatua Corner, a Tamariki rest stop, lost children/parents space, Kaumatua Carriers (using golf carts), tangata from Maiaorere whares, Ki o Rahi Iwi Bowl Tournament, a huge marquee set up as a chill out zone and an entertainment stage with Ngati Hine FM.

It was a great day to mahitahi with other providers and community groups. A big mihi to everyone who was a part of our collaborative space!
