This years Tūhoe Rangatahi wānanga will be held on the 18 – 20 October in Ruatāhuna.

This wānanga is a follow up to the 2012 wānanga held in Rūātoki, and continues the kaupapa of ‘Ngā Tohu Whenua o Tūhoe.’

Participants will be guided by local rangatahi to marae and tohu whenua / Tūhoe historical sites. At each visit we will be given a brief history and an opportunity to ask questions.

Hosted by Te Roopu Rangatahi o Te Urewera, the three day noho is open to all Tūhoe aged 18 – 39 years, at no cost for accomodation and kai.

He hui nui ka tu ki Ruatahuna mo nga rangatahi a Tuhoe hei te tekau ma waru o Whiringa a Nuku. He kaupapa hei awhina i te reanga rangatahi o Tuhoe ki te whakapakari i a ratou mo nga ra kei mua i te aroaro. I timata ake tenei kaupapa e rua tau ki muri e whakawhirinaki atu ai te hunga o te haukainga me nga uri e noho tawhiti ana. Ko te tino aronga o te kaupapa, ko te whakakaha i te reanga rangatahi ki te reo ake o Tuhoe, me te whakangungu i a ratou ki roto i nga mahi hei painga ma te iwi. I tera tau i tu te hui nei ki Te Totara marae i Ruatoki, me te ngakau nui a nga pakeke ki nga hua i puta mai i nga tauira. Nga tohu Whenua te ingoa o te noho marae, me te hiahia a nga kaiwhakahaere kia whai waahi atu ai te hunga kei waenga i nga tau tekau ma waru ki te toru tekau ma iwa mo te kore utu.
