The Mauri Ora (cultural) pillar is a critical kaupapa and focusses on our identity as Ngāti Rārua. History, whakapapa, waiata, tikanga and kawa specific to Ngāti Rārua will be explored, debated and celebrated as part of an ongoing series of wānanga and engagement with iwi members. Through our cultural strategy we hope our members will identify proudly as Ngāti Rārua because they will be strong in their Ngāti Rāruatanga. Please find below our mauri ora posts.
