28 Oct Whakatinanatia te Huahuatau (Application of Metaphoric Knowledge to Physical Activity)
Toi Tangata is hosting a one day Atua Matua workshop at 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 these 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.
