Toi Tangata has been given an amazing opportunity to host a one day Atua Matua workshop an introductory level to the Atua Matua framework created by Dr Ihirangi Heke at He Waka Tapu in Christchurch. This workshop will engage participants with the Atua Matua framework through environmental skill acquisition. We will share knowledge on Atua and Kaitiaki through mātauranga (knowledge), whakapapa (lineage), huahuatau (metaphoric) interpretations and the application of these as a health or physical activity output (whakapakari tinana).

Hosted by Toi Tangata He Pī Ka Rere is a kori and kai (movement and nutrition) approach to nurture the development of under 5's within their early learning environments. This approach is based on traditional techniques used by our tūpuna (ancestors) and engages tamariki in physical activity with a fun twist on Te Ao Māori (Māori worldview). The activities in the approach share direct links to Atua Māori (Māori Deities) and are modified to cater to tamariki ages and abilities whilst utilising the natural environment. It brings a new dimension of learning to kaiako (teachers), tamariki, and whānau whānui as they expand their knowledge of Māori culture and vocabulary.
