Na’au Night – A Summer Series is proudly sponsored by the Ministry of Social Development (MSD), Ministry for Pacific Peoples (MPP), and Pasifika Futures Ltd (PFL). Created by the cooperative enterprising spirit of local families, Na’au Night, pronounced ‘NAH-OH’ means “for you”, is about raising the bar of Pacific food and beverage. In the heart of South Auckland our communities are predominantly Pacific, but that doesn’t mean that we’re surrounded by Pacific food. Together we want to raise the bar of Pacific food by hosting an event that has local families selling cultural food created from authentic family recipes. From Takihi known to Niue, to Mitiore known to the Cook Islands, Na’au Night will entice your taste buds, and take you back to the islands.
Join us Friday 1st November at CIDANZ (287 Kikrbirde Road, Mangere) with a live pork spit, and Pacific food + beverages from Niue, Tonga, Samoa, the Cook Islands and many more! We will also have a crafts exhibition, and launch the Kia Orana Pasifika Gallery (KPG) – a gift shop filled with cultural arts and crafts. We are currently creating a community-owned online store for KPG at www.kiaoranapasifika.co.nz.
This event is open to all to enjoy. You can also become a stall holder or to be a part of our volunteer team! To do so, contact Tangee Kokaua on 021 116 9517 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll see you there!
