Taiao Aronui

A professional development leadership programme in pūtaiao science and mātauranga Māori.

Taiao Aronui

Taiao Aronui is a programme designed in collaboration with Rangitāmiro rōpū to inspire and elevate tamariki, whānau, hapu and iwi within Rotorua.

With a strong focus on mātauranga Māori and pūtaiao, this programme provides kaiako with opportunities to connect with like-minded people in the rohe through wānanga, professional development pathways and relationship-building.

One of the three baskets of knowledge, the basket of aroha, peace, arts and crafts that benefit all living things. This basket relates to knowledge acquired through careful observation of the environment. Taiao Aronui is based around detailed observation of our local environment.

E Whā Ngā Kaupapa Wānanga

Taiao Aronui involves four kaupapa wānanga. Each wānanga has been designed to explore how we embed mātauranga Māori connected to our unique Ngāti Whakaue/ Te Arawa narratives and environment. Kaiako will be given opportunities to restore, renew and revitalise their practice, enabling them to become leaders within the fields of pūtaiao science and mātauranga Māori.
