Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is excited to host the 19th Wānanga-ā-Tau for Te Toi Tauira mō te Matariki 2018 at AUT.
The Wānanga-ā-Tau theme, Te Pūrengi, is a call to Māori students, staff, and educators alike to grasp the metaphorical rope of the mast, seek out opportunities, and venture into new waters. It will consequently explore the tides and currents that shape Māori aspirations in the increasingly complex and ever-changing tertiary education environment. Informed by the courage of our tīpuna we navigate these waters, buoyed by the transformational capacity of our rangatahi, who remind us of the capability of education and the opportunities that higher education, mātauranga, and te reo Māori provide for all.
AUT hopes that this Wānanga-ā-Tau will represent a gathering of waka that will inspire our Māori and non-Māori communities far and wide to whakamaua Te Pūrengi – take hold of the rope of the mast, to navigate, to uplift and support Māori students and staff in our quest for knowledge and understanding.
E matakuikui ana te ngākau kia whārikihia e mātou o AUT ko te Wānanga-ā-Tau Tuangahuru mā iwa mō Te Toi Tauira mō te Matariki 2018 ki AUT (South Campus, 640 Great South Road, Manukau) mai i te 5-7 o Mahuru. Ko te ipukarea mō tēnei tau, ko Te Pūrengi, he tono ki ngā pononga o te kuranui, ākonga mai, kaimahi mai, pouako mai kia whakamaua te pūrengi kia tere ai te waka ki ngā mātāhauariki o te māramatanga. Nā konā he whakatere waka i ngā au o te wai e ora ai ō tātou wawata e waipuketia ana i te Moana nui a Kuranui, a Kuraroa, a Kurapāmaomao.
Nā ō tātou tīpuna i whakapūaho mai te arawai hei whai, me te kārewa anō hoki i ā tātou mātātahi e auheke ana i ngā tai o te ao huri nei, ko rātou anō e tohu ana i ngā hua o te kura matua, e whakarere iho ana te kakau o te hoe e tetere nei te waka o te kuranui, te waka o te kī, ki ngā pae o te māramatanga. Ko te wawata ia, he teo herenga waka te Wānanga-ā-Tau nei hei whakaohooho i ō tātou hāpori, Māori mai, Pākehā mai, kia whakamaua Te Pūrengi – e nanao atu ai te taura o tokotū, e hiki kakau ai te hoe ki te whakatere tōtika te waka, kia waka eke noatia te koke ki tua o kitea, ka kitea, ka kitea.
