Enjoy learning about the significant ancestors of this region, as well as the place names and landmarks of Turanganui-a-Kiwa, as we explore our founding Tipuna stories with the team at Te Runanga o Turanganui a Kiwa.

This month we explore the story of the waka Ikaroa-a-Rauru and its captain Maia, who is credited with bringing gourd seeds from Hawaiki.

About Tuia 250 ki Tūranga:
Tuia 250 ki Tūranga is about our people and our place - what brought us together, what challenges us still, and how we are weaving our differing cultures and values into a future we will be proud to leave for our grand-children.

Join us, in a year-long conversation as we think about what dual heritage actually looks like and have those conversations vital to forging a shared future. It is our hope that conversations will be had, journeys will be taken, perspectives will broaden and experiences shared as we get ready to host the nation in October 2019.
