Pa Metua Super Gold Club Launch

 

Our elders have lived rich lives rife with even richer knowledge. On Tuesday 2 October 2018, the Pa Metua Super Gold Club was lunched. The Purpose of the group is to embrace, to remember, to help live on the knowledge and precious teachings and lessons of my Ui Tupuna, yesterday, today for my tamariki tomorrow.

12 members strong, the aim of the group is to preserve and learn from the knowledge of our elders.

Exhibition & Launch of CITVCNZ

,

On Monday 22nd October, the Cook Islands Taokotai’anga Vainetini Collective NZ (CITVCNZ) was officially launched at a Cook Islands exhibition. The Collective was first set-up in 2016 with three members – Tepori Teariki, Nana Kamo-Mataroa, and Vaine Areora. Over time, the group grew, becoming 44 members strong and steadily rising.

With a vision to unite and prosper the Cook Islands community, CITVCNZ have several projects underway, including upcycling materials donated by the Takanini Sikh community, and adapting Cook Islands to be sold at the Te Papa Museum.

The launch of CITVCNZ was met with great enthusiasm from the Cook Islands community who rallied together in support of the women. We look forward to seeing more from our Mama’s.
