With the launch of the Ngāti Ranginui app, 'Te Whare Korokī', the Mauri Ora team invite you to take this opportunity to get your whānau out and about to reconnect with Ngāti Ranginui Iwi marae and incorporate a bit of physical activity along the way.
The whakataetae starts the day of the Te Whare Korokī app launch (Friday 30th July) and finishes Friday 3rd September, five weeks later. Check out the whakataetae below and see how you might be able to win some wicked iwi merchandise for you and your whānau.
The kaupapa of this challenge is for whānau to be more proactive with their taha tinana, taha whānau, and taha wairua and to enable Ngāti Ranginui uri to reconnect through visiting our marae.
Encourage your whānau members – tamariki, friends, cousins, aunties, uncles, even nan and koro – to join in and take part. On arrival, complete an exercise together in the hope that this could spark some kōrero about your marae and pass on pūkenga one might not know about. If you need some help with kōrero about the marae, simply open your TE WHARE KOROKĪ app!
The Whakataetae is simple:
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
Make sure you write your name and those involved as well as the category they enter. For example: Te Aihe Toma, Tāne.
Categories for entries are:
Once we see you have completed 5 marae, the Mauri Ora team will add you and those that were involved into a draw to win some wicked Ngāti Ranginui Iwi merchandise to be announced Friday 3rd September 2021.
E te iwi,
Hikaka katoa ana Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui ki te whakarewa i tō mātou taupānga “Te Whare Korokī” ā te 30 o Hurae, hei te poupoutanga o te rā. He taupānga tēnei i hangaia e te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui kia ngāwari ake te ako i ngā kōrero me ngā waiata o ia marae. Hei te 30 o Hurae, ka rite te taupānga ki te tiki atu. Ki te hiahia te whakarongo ki ngā kōrero ki ngā waiata rānei, me tae atu ki ngā marae hei tūwhera i te Pataka Kōrero o taua marae. He rautaki tēnei kia hoki atu ngā tangata ki o rātou marae me te ako hoki i wēnei taonga Ranginui, ka kitea!
Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui are excited to launch our app, ‘Te Whare Korokī’ on the Friday 30th July, midday. This app has been created by Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui to help enable an easier path to learning the korero, and waiata of our marae. The app will be ready to be downloaded on the 30th July. If you want to listen to the kōrero and waiata, you must go to your marae to release the Pātaka Kōrero for that marae. This is a strategy to bring our people back to their marae and learn these taonga.
Through May and June, Mauri Ora are conducting a 6 week cooking competition to see who is our master chief of Tauranga moana. This wero not only brings out the best kai cookers in Tauranga, but allows:
The whakataetae is simple and easy for our whānau to engage in.
Each week Mauri Ora will randomly select a lucky whānau from the entries who will receive a koha.
At the end of 6th week Mauri Ora will invite two whānau who have participated in the event. They will be invited to a final cook off with special judges Mel Tata, Stephen Wilson (Happy Puku), and Charlie Rahiri. The whanau that wins will be rewarded, but also the whānau that particpates.
For more information on this kaupapa, follow the link below:
In addition to this kaupapa, Mauri Ora is supporting a young wahine named Innocence Henry who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma Cancer on New Year’s Eve 2020. To show our support, for every participant who enters a kai into the tunu kai wero, Mauri Ora will contribute to her kaupapa.
