Te Waka Kaupapa o Waikare

Having embraced the Waka Kaupapa since 2012, a new generation of kaihoe from Te Kura o Waikare travelled to the Hihiaua Cultural Centre in Whangārei yesterday, to watch the building and restoration of four waka. The tamariki got up close to observe both the traditional mātauranga (tārai waka) and contemporary art form. While they were learning about the 3D printer technology being used onsite to print a smaller bio-plastic version of an Hawai’ian  wa’a (outrigger canoe), the students were also able to watch live feed of the larger 3D printer in Wellington printing the full-size replica. During his mihi, Matua Te Wārihi Hetaraka acknowledged their Te Kapotai tūpuna Te Koukou and his interaction with the Tahitian navigator Tupaia. On Friday 8 November, Te Kura o Waikare tamariki and kaihoe will be supporting the Te Kapotai hapū commemoration ‘Te Mauri o Tupaia’, that is being hosted by Waikare Marae.
