Gathering of wāhine celebrating who we are as we are!
Forget that individual glass ceiling korero and focus on our collective cultural narratives, knowledge, and tools!!
Take some time out during the Korekore phase in May to come together with other wāhine to reflect on the Maori year past, and plan for the new year ahead with Matariki rising at the end of June.
