Atua Matua Wānanga
Toi Tangata are continuing our mahi working alongside Dr Ihirangi Heke to support the sector to grow an understanding of the Atua Matua Framework, support leadership growth in this area, and provide platforms and opportunities for learning through applied practice. Wānanga are one of the approaches that we are leading to achieve this alongside other providers leading in this space.
These wānanga are centered on reintroducing kaimahi to maunga, wai and whetu concepts through wairua, hinengaro and tinana processes. A large part of each wānanga is aimed at addressing ‘why’ whānau would or wouldn’t engage with physical activity or nutrition. The ‘why’ question requires a wairua/hinengaro engagement through the wānanga process to define what aspects determine the levers for engagement. The ‘a wairua/a hinengaro’ wānanga aspects are then followed by a practical component in/on/under the water, in the mountains/bush and using upper level ‘whetu’ philosophy to achieve it.
