Hiwa - Whakatū

Saturday 25th June 2022

Te Kotahi o Te Tauihu Trust and Māori health providers from across the rohe invite you to celebrate Matariki with us at Hiwa, three fun events in Motueka, Whakatū and Wairau.

Hiwa brings together Māori health providers, Māori businesses, local performers and others working to support whānau for some good kai, good times, and whakawhanaungatanga.

Heaps for the tamariki and the whole family – kapa haka, live entertainment, kai stalls, bouncy castles, superheroes, games and giveaways and cooking demonstrations with Kōhatu Kai. Or come and have a kōrero with health professionals, get a check-up and stay on top of your health this winter. There will also be lots of information on support with housing, employment and training.

Tell your whānau, bring the kids – Hei reira!

Keep an eye on the Te Kotahi o Te Tauihu Trust Facebook page for updates.


Hiwa-i-te-rangi is the youngest whetū of the Matariki cluster and is connected to the promise of a prosperous season. “Hiwa” means “vigorous of growth” and “I te rangi” means “in the sky”.

Hiwa-i-te-rangi is a wishing star. She encourages us to hold firm to our goals and seek out opportunities to see them realised.
