Whakatinanatia te Huahuatau (Application of Metaphoric Knowledge to Physical Activity)

November 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Toi Tangata has been given an amazing opportunity to host a one day Atua Matua workshop an introductory level to the Atua Matua framework created by Dr Ihirangi Heke at He Waka Tapu in Christchurch.

This workshop will engage participants with the Atua Matua framework through environmental skill acquisition. We will share knowledge on Atua and Kaitiaki through mātauranga (knowledge), whakapapa (lineage), huahuatau (metaphoric) interpretations and the application of thes

e as a health or physical activity output (whakapakari tinana).

Participants will gain a fundamental understanding of the Atua Matua approach and how it connects traditional Māori knowledge with health and physical activity becoming incidental outcomes.

We intend to ensure to you get the most out of your day!

WHAT TO BRING

A comfortable pair of trainers or running shoes.
Comfortable clothing to exercise in.

Kai will be provided throughout the day.
