Finding Whātua

Finding Whātua is a brand new 8-week Toi Whātua initiative focusing on providing Ngā Uri o Tuperiri opportunities to research, explore, create, or design resources, media, or opportunities.

Finding Whātua will assist whānau to further define and identify just what it is that makes us uniquely Whātua. More importantly, Finding Whātua will strengthen what binds us together as individuals, members, whānau, rōpū, and hapū within the dynamics and whanaungatanga specific to Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.

  • Facilitate Wānanga
