Turangawaewae Marae to host hui.

TE RUNANGA O Aotearoa NZNO's annual but is being hosted by the Midlands Te Runanga and held at Turangawaewae Marae in Ngaruawahia in August. The theme is Kia whakaaro kotahi, kia kotahi ra (Think as one, act as one).

Being invited to Turangawaewae Marae, the home of Maori Queen Dame Te Ariki Nut Te Ata-irangi-kaahu, is a very special honour, says Te Runanga vice-chair Anne McNicol, who has a close association with the marae and is a trustee of Nga Miro Health Centre, based at the marae. "Maori nursing in the Waikato started from this marae, encouraged by Princess Te Puea after the flu epidemic earlier last century," said McNicol. "Many orphaned children were also cared for at the marae following the epidemic, with many of their descendents still living in the area. Holding the hui at this location should make it easy for many North Island Te Runanga members and other interested people to attend."

Abstract submissions close on May 23. These may be sent to Chris Baker, 212 Ohaupo Road, Hamilton or emailed to bakerc@waikatodhb.govt.nz.
