Waiariki ki Taranaki
Waiariki - Our Water Your Future is a contribution towards building content and understanding around Wai Māori. Waiariki is here to provide Māori communities throughout Aotearoa, sound data, information and knowledge to ensure we sustain better health for our land, water ways and our people.
We will also be providing an introduction to the kaupapa He Pī Ka Rere; a kaupapa Māori physical activity and nutrition approach that nurtures and develops the whole being of a tamaiti in Kaupapa Māori Early Learning Environments (KMELE). This approach is based on traditional techniques used by our tūpuna combined with a need to supply our tamariki with the abilities, skills, and awareness to lead a lifelong relationship with movement. The activities in the programme share direct links to Atua Māori and the realms or domains in which they reside.
He Pī Ka Rere enables tamariki to be engaged in physical activity with a fun twist on Te Ao Māori. It brings a new dimension of learning to kaiako, tamariki and whānau whānui as they extend their Māori vocabulary with new words and phrases.
