WAI Wānanga

These are a series of wānanga led by Dr Ihirangi Heke and Callie Corrigan alongside community and health providers with an interest in connecting health to Māori concepts of environment.  The Atua – Matua framework was developed by Dr Ihirangi Heke and examines Māori notions of Whetu, WAI and whenua.  These wānanga adopt an experiential learning approach for providers around the country to connect to the framework through physical activity mediums that engage participantsin, on and under Whetu, WAI and whenua environs.
