Kai Māori Workshops/Papamahi

Te Aho Tū Roa, kaupapa embraces Māori culture, language and wisdom. Through our partner Toimata Foundation we are supporting both Te Aho Tū Roa and Enviroschools. Our funding has assisted a series of Kai Māori Papamahi/Workshops in Te Tairāwhiti/East Coast. The events are for whānau and community to explore traditional Māori kai and its role in hauora/health. Workshops involve sharing knowledge (e.g. techniques for harvesting/growing, storage, preparation) and the traditional pūrakau/stories from the area – a window into the old knowledge.

This is a collaborative project involving:

  1. Te Aho Tū Roa (the Poutautoko role employed by Toimata).
  2. Te Whare Hauora o Te Aitanga Hauiti (Provides a wide range of health education and promotion services within the Tairawhiti area),
  3. Taniwha Connections (Environmental Conservation Organisation)

We loved how this involves the wider community and is already a very collaborative project focused on sharing knowledge about the benefits of so many of our natural resources and kai.
