Māori place names - Point Erin to Wynyard Quarter with Herewini Easton Wednesday 12 July, 12pm -1pm

E tu ake ana ahau ki Okā 
Ka tiro atu ki Te Waikōkota 
Ka rongo ahau ki ngā wai e tere nei
Ko Tīkapa Moana, ko Hauraki ko Waitemata
Ko Ūreia he tipua he taniwha
As I stand at Okā I look out across Te Waikōkota
I sense the waters flowing, Tīkapa Moana, Hauraki, Waitemata
Here is Ūreia the mythical sea creature

Join Herewini Easton on a pictorial journey of the ancient shoreline of Auckland’s waterfront, from Point Erin to Brickfield Bay.

Engagement with Māori taonga - with Rob Eruera.  Wednesday 26 July, 12pm -1pm 

The charismatic karanga of taonga Māori over the years has left my mind and heart filled with emotional wonder at how powerful such treasures truly are. Most important to this equation, however, is how people engage and join with the taonga.

Please join me in this low key chat. 
Nau mai – Haere mai  - Rob Eurera.

Kia mau koe ki nga kupu o ou tupuna (hold fast to the words of your ancestors)
