Share an afternoon of kōrero and waiata

with Leonie Hayden (Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara, Ngāti Rango), Aroha Harris (Te Rarawa, Ngāpuhi), Matariki Williams (Tūhoe, Te Atiawa, Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Hauiti), Helen Brown (Ngāi Tahu), Melissa Matutina Williams (Te Rarawa, Ngāti Maru), Emma Frost (Te Rarawa, Ngāti Kuri) and Ria Hall (Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui, Whānau a Apanui, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Tuwharetoa).

This BWB Winter Series event brings together Māori historians, curators, archivists, and mokopuna to celebrate the diverse history of mana wahine, with a live performance by musician Ria Hall. Representing iwi from Te Aupouri to Ngāi Tahu, and from the platforms of Te Kotahitanga to Plunket, inspirational women who have moved and continue to move us are set to be made visible in this year commemorating 125 years of women’s suffrage.
