4-7 FEBRUARY 2021
As New Zealanders, Waitangi sits at the heart of our identity. It’s where the Treaty was first signed; and it’s home to the people who welcomed New Zealand’s first Christian missionaries. The stories of Waitangi are our stories; they are your stories.
Karuwhā aims to help people experience the commemorations, and to form their own connection to this place and these narratives. The Karuwha rōpū have been making this journey for many years now and have been welcomed back by the whānau of Te Tii Marae.
This four-day event is held annually over the Waitangi Commemorations, 4th February to 7th February, and is an invitation to experience Waitangi first-hand: to serve alongside tangata whenua, to visit significant sites, to spend time listening to stories of our past from kaumatua and historians.
What will this hīkoi include?
