MANA WĀ Rangatahi Symposium
New Date: 20th August 2018 - support crew Registration
Haeata Community Campus, Shortland Street, Wainoni
Tēnā koe ki ngā āhuatanga o tēnei wā
On Monday 20th August 2018 Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu and Te Rau Matatini are sponsoring a wellbeing day for Māori secondary school students under the guiding kaupapa of “Mana-Wā Rangatahi”. We have selected schools from the east side cluster to participate and welcome your support.
Mana-Wā Rangatahi is about rangatahi validation of the “essence of wellbeing” being expressions of mana. Sharing in creative spaces helps build rapport and trust of one’s inner self and others. For this epic occasion we create spaces and time for self and collective expressions of mana as rangatahi Maori.
This letter is a formal invitation to register your support, skills and knowledge:
Students arrive 9-9.15am Monday 20th August 2018 at Haeata Community Campus Shortland Street, Wainoni. Morning tea and lunch is provided. The event closes at 2.45pm.
Workshop ideas include a mix of creative and innovative spaces for rangatahi to express mana in traditional and contemporary forms, such as:
Kāpā hāka, waiata-a-ringa, Mau Rākau
Taonga Puoro demonstrations
Augmented Reality Storytelling - Teaching rangatahi how to engage and create content with AR using visual aids, phones, devices and spaces.
Trialling new workshops that specialise in rangatahi engagement and facilitating future pathway planning for rangatahi by teaching good lifestyle habits.
Te Ha – meditation and mindfulness techniques, yoga warriors
Basketball skills and games to connect togetherness
Personal stylists – hair, face, hands and feet to be confirmed
Guest Speakers – Kenny McFadden and Vanilla Tillman – to be confirmed
Mana-Wā Rangatahi is sponsored by Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu and Te Rau Matatini to help raise awareness of suicide prevention. Rates of suicide are disproportionately higher for Māori than for any other ethnic group in New Zealand. Literature identifies two areas within the rangatahi population that require a particular focus, are cyber bullying and the rangatahi takatāpui (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, intersex or LGBTQI rainbow natives).
Workshop facilitators and volunteers will be supported by kaumātua and whaea who have the appropriate clinical and cultural expertise to guide and support rangatahi through the day.
