Toi Tangata

For the last four weeks, we have been sharing space with Joe Mcleod and his team from E Kai Māori as we travelled from Omanaia to Whaingaroa, to Pukepoto as part of the wānanga series, Ngā kai Tuatahi o te Motu. It has been beautiful to meet haukāinga and whānau from across Te Tai Tokerau and beyond who have come to learn and practice all that Joe has had to share.

For some, Joe's wānanga was a reminder of how things were done in the time of their pakeke and kaumātua, it was an affirmation of the value and validity of our own tikanga and mātauranga; for others, it was an expanding and deepening of other practices entrenched in te taiao.

Certainly, Joe's mahi aligns deeply with our aspirations for Kai Māori Kai Ora here at Toi Tangata. That being, to acknowledge the mana of our atua, our taiao, and of ngā tuatahi o te motu, which have irreplaceable whakapapa to these lands and waters. Further, to acknowledge the mana of haukāinga who, across generations, have done their best to steward these places. Joe's mahi strengthens our vision for Kai Māori Kai Ora, regarding what it means for us as whānau to be well through kai.

We are immensely grateful to our partners and to marae representatives who supported in the planning of this kaupapa - Dallas King, Healthy Families Far North, Te Rūnanga o Whaingaroa, Danica Smith, Waikarere Gregory, Parakore and Tui Bedggood. Thank you to all of the marae, Te Piiti, Te Patunga, Te Uri o Hina kōrua ko Te Rarawa who welcomed the kaupapa with such warmth and enthusiasm.

Finally, me mihi ka tika ki a Joe me tōnā ope - Adrian and Ash. Kua whakarangatira koe i a mātou o Te Tai Tokerau otirā i a mātou ngā kaihāpai i te kaupapa. Kua puta a pito! Kua kī katoa a hinengaro i ngā mātauranga kua whangaihia e koe.

If you would like to get in contact with Joe, visit him at his website www.ekaimaori.co.nz/

This E Kai Māori wānanga series was financially supported by Foundation North, Kaikohe - Hokianga Community Board, Te Hiku Community Board, Bay of Islands - Whangaroa Community Board, Te Puni Kōkiri and Parakore.
