Kaupapa Māori

E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatanga maha tēnā tātou katoa. E mihi ana ki te mana whenua, Rangitāne o Manawatū, tēnā koutou.

He Ara Kotahi, Hei Ara Kōrero

Rangitāne o Manawatū and Central Economic Development Agency (CEDA) have worked together to create an innovative interactive map that brings to life the pūrākau (stories), oral histories and historical recreations of life on and around te awa o Manawatū – the Manawatū River.

He Ara Kotahi, Hei Ara Kōrero.

Celebrating Puanga

This video, created by Rangitāne and Palmerston North City Council, helps explain Puanga and why Puanga is celebrated here in Palmerston North.

Matariki is a time of remembrance, celebration and sharing. For Māori, it marks the beginning of a new year and is a time of coming together as communities and whānau.

Rangitāne o Manawatū traditionally give prominence to Puanga, an important star near the Matariki cluster that can be easier to see in this part of the motu.

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

Here at the Palmerston North City Library we celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori with activities and resources to assist you on your pathway to learning te reo Māori.

Come in and find a book, join in with our PNCC waiata group - Manu Hāpai, or maybe have a Kōrero Kawhe-Coffee Chat.
