Mana Pounamu Awards Evening

Celebrating Mā?ori achievement in Otāgo Secondary Schools

He tāoka, he koha, he kura pounamu

The Mana Pounamu Young Achievers' Awards were brought about through the vision of the late Tāua, Alva Kapa, and were named as such because they were first held in the Year of Mana Pounamu (2001). The Awards are a Kāi Tahu initiative supported by Kā Papatipu Rūnaka ki Arāiteuru, the University of Otago, the Otago Polytechnic, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and the Ministry of Education. 

The objectives of these Awards are to:

  • Celebrate the success and achievement of rakatahi Mā?ori;
  • Encourage rakatahi Māori to participate in tertiary study;
  • Identify leadership potential; and
  • Provide positive role models to rakatahi Māori.

The 2012 awards ceremony is being held at the University of Otago College of Education Auditorium on Friday the 26th October 2012.

New process for Mihi Whakatau

We have simplified the process for staff to request a Mihi Whakatau (welcome speech) or Pōwhiri (ritual of encounter, marae-based); an application can now be made online at: http://maori.otago.ac.nz/reo-tikanga-treaty/mihi-whakatau

Requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event. On receipt of your application, you will be sent an automated response; 48-hours following, a staff member will be in contact to confirm availability and firm up arrangements. Karawhiua!
