PADA Māori Maternal Mental Health Hui

Waiora Whāea – 27 & 28 Oketopa October 2022


Join us on 27 and 28 Oketopa October 2022 for our second in person Māori Maternal Mental Health Hui, being held at Tangatarua Marae in Rotorua.

We are grateful to be bringing our annual Māori Maternal Mental Health hui back in person, following our first hui held in Noema November 2020, and our Hui-Ā-Ipurangi/Online Hui in 2021.

The focus of this hui will be on restoring traditional Māori practices in the maternal mental health space. This is more than a seminar, this hui will be an immersive and interactive experience held over two days, full of the wisdom and healing of Te Ao and Tikanga Māori.

We are hoping to bring you the wisdom of Raranga | Māori weaving ~ Taonga Pūoro | Music ~ Mirimiri | Massage ~ Rongoā Māori | Traditional Māori Healing.

Some of the feedback received from Whakamana Te Whare Tangata Hui-Ā-Ipurangi in Noema November 2021:

“As a pakeha, what I gained was invaluable appreciation for what it means to have to fight for your voice to be heard and your ways to be respected. Knowledge weighs a tonne but it does help build bridges”

“How important it is to return to have a traditional Māori health system that I believe will not only start to help heal the Māori community but is also a healing and environmentally sustainable health system for everyone.”

“As pākehā kaimahi we need to focus on cultural safety in all that we do. I have been doing my post graduate in this area and want to know from whānau what it is that works well for them.”

Fully Booked!
