Te Ati Awa and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa signed Kawenata

Te Ati Awa and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa have signed a Kawenata that cements an enduring inter-generational relationship.

The signing of the Kawenata or accord between Te Ati Awa me ngā iwi o Taranaki whānui ki te upoko o Te Ika ā Maui and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa took place at Waiwhetu Marae in Wellington last Thursday after several months of discussions.

The Kawenata includes seven principles which lay the foundations for the relationship that will in time see cultural and educational collaboration that will benefit Te Ati Awa tribal members, tauira and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.

Te Taiurungi Dr Jim Mather and Te Ati Awa leader Kara Puketapu are pictured signing the Kawenata at Waiwhetu Marae.
