Mana Tāne Ora O Waitaha: Maori Men’s Health Collective


Monthly Hui in Christchurch

Mana Tāne Ora o Waitaha has been meeting monthly over 2021 at noon on a Thursday, and this is an invitation to those with an interest in Tāne Ora.

 The group has generally been an opportunity for us to catch up kanohi ki te kanohi and check-in with each other and to meet new faces. The meetings are also a good way to celebrate what’s important to us as Tāne.

He paku whakamāramatanga – A Little History

This roopu formed in 2009 following a Tāne Ora conference in Blenheim. Since then we have met sporadically with the aim of whanaungatanga and also to share our thoughts and plans for Tāne Ora in our respective fields. Our Facebook page contains the occasional update.
