Te Ahuareka o Ngati Hine Festival is a two-day festival held at Otiria Marae in Moerewa.

The aim is to:

Celebrate achievement, leadership, skill development and success

Highlight topics of wellbeing that lead to improved quality of life

Uphold and uplift culture, Maori language, beliefs and protocols

Have fun and work together.

This year's event is scheduled for March 15 and 16.

The overriding theme is tatai hono or connecting people and the sub-theme will be waiora or the waters of life.

The event will feature waiata, haka and other on-stage performances that highlight conservation, use, science and traditional customs relating to water.

The waiora sub-theme inspires off-stage exhibitions through presentations, stalls, exhibitions and displays.

The first day is for schools, kohanga reo and early childhood centres while the second day is for adults.
