TE PŪTAKE O TE RIRI,
HE RĀ MAUMAHARA KI TARANAKI 2019

All have been invited to attend the National Commemoration Day, He Rā Maumahara ki Taranaki, to commemorate the New Zealand land wars in Taranaki.
The Maniapoto Māori Trust Board has organised a bus to travel down to Taranaki for Maniapoto whānau who would like to attend. This will be a same day return trip (depart Te Kūiti at 7am and returning at 3pm on Monday 28 October), so if you are interested, please contact Dawn on dawn@maniapoto.co.nz asap to confrm your seat.  Please note that the bus will be contingent on confirmed numbers.

Te Pūtake o te Riri, He Rā Maumahara is a series of events being held across Aotearoa which seek to increase awareness among all Aotearoa citizens through the telling and sharing of stories about our local history, significant landmarks and people relating to the period of the New Zealand wars, with the aim of strengthening relationships and partnerships across the country.
This year, the event will be held in Taranaki, and we encourage all whānau to attend in recognition of our historical relationship, and remembering our Maniapoto tūpuna who fought and fell on the battle fields of Waitara.

This is an opportunity for our pakeke and rangatahi to follow in the steps of their tupuna and learn an important part of our tribal history, to give respect and acknowledge all who fell in Waitara and across the motu. As part of the event guided tours of the battle sites will take place and remembrance ceremonies as well. on M

Preparations are in full swing to host a national initiative, Te Pūtake o te Riri, He Rā Maumahara, to commemorate the New Zealand land wars in Taranaki.

Dr Ruakere Hond who is a key member of the working party coordinating the event in Taranaki says that Te Pūtake o te Riri gives the community the opportunity to participate in an event that focuses on our nation’s local history – a history that not many New Zealanders know about.
