Whānau online

Whānau are having all kinds of challenges during the COVID-19 rāhui. We may not be used to living inside our bubble with limited access to activities or things to keep us entertained inside our kāinga. Change can be stressful for everyone.

This page has lots of resources, activities, help and advice for us all, from the kids to the kaumatua.  You can find great teaching resources for that home-schooling, learn Te Reo Māori or improve your hauora with tikanga Māori knowledge.  Thinking about setting up an online business?  We’ve got resources for you too.

If you know of a useful link we can add please contact us.

Look after each other - help #ProtectOurWhakapapa.

Waiata Mai!

Record you and your bubble singing ‘Te Taonga o Tōku Ngākau’ - and we’ll make you world famous in Aotearoa!
We chose this waiata composed by Kuia Te Manawakore (Matilda) Leach because it’s simple, easily recognised by people of all ages and because it focuses on the importance of whakapapa.  

Submit your entry by Wednesday 29 April 2020.
Email:info@protectourwhakapapa.co.nzor message us through FacebookYou can also upload it via the link below.

We will edit your videos into one beautiful waiata, release and celebrate it  on our Facebook page at 8pm Saturday 2 May 2020.
