About Kahungunu ki Wairarapa

Kahungunu ki Wairarapa is dedicated to supporting the continuous development of culturally strong, healthy and vibrant whānau. Our key vision is that our young people are recognised as leaders; we have a league of fit and health kaumātua who participate in activities that embrace whānaungatanga; and we support the collective of Kahungunu ki Wairarapa marae and hapu through Te Kotahitanga.
