Oranga Marae, Oranga Tinana Two Day Wānanga

This two day wānanga will be a hands on programme that will begin with kōrero from local experts on maramataka and mātauranga principles of kai and wai. Day two will focus on practical cooking sessions that embed this knowledge into practice. With a practical approach to learning, participants will be supported to develop their own tikanga for kai based on the connections to their wharekai tīpuna and will be introduced to the ideas of:

  • Connecting the principles of mātauranga Māori and maramataka for kai and wai from a local perspective.
  • Learning about Toi Tangata’s strategies of Wai Māori Ngai Māori and Kai Māori Kai Ora to support Oranga Marae, Oranga Tinana.
  • Attaining knowledge and skills on how to cook quick, easy, bulk, and cheap kai for whanau.
  • For the marae cook – learn and contribute to the practical session on Oranga Marae, Oranga Tinana

Facilitated by Erina Korohina and with korero and insights from local experts, participants will also come away with a fundamental understanding of maramataka gardening and nutrition.

Who is this for?
This wānanga aims to support and uplift marae whanau and community and in particular those who are interested in gardening and cooking practices that align with the maramataka Māori.
