Te Whakamānutanga Waka

June 23 @ 5:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Ōkahu Bay, Ōrākei

Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei ki uta,  Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei ki tai.

Preparations for te whakamānutanga waka, the launch of our new waka, are underway. Sunday 23 June, 2024

5am - Whānau gather at Ōrākei Marae for briefing, followed by walking procession down to Ōkahu Bay to meet and launch the new waka.

The launch of our waka will be a significant and beautiful event for Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and we encourage as many of our whānau to join us in marking this momentous occasion.

As this is a significant project and investment for Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, we also engaged a production house to document the journey and today we share with our whānau, a sneak peak. The doco series will be presented as six 10 minute videos. We can't wait to see the final product and to share with you all. View our preview story herehttps://bit.ly/4a98SKH
