Leading into our 100th edition of Tihei Kahungunu, we have introduced Pā mai tō reo! a one-page chronicle of the journeys of Te Waka Takitimu and its origins from Te Moananui a Kiwa and its steady migration over 300 years to its eventual resting place in Te Waipounamu, Aotearoa.  

Previous to the Takitimu voyage, however, we can trace our whakapapa through Polynesia into Melanesia through Micronesia into Austronesia from our origins in Asia. Join us as we take you on a journey. Pā Mai tō Reo is featured in the following community papers (Hastings Leader, Napier Courier, CHB Mail and Bush Telegraph) and is also communicated through our iwi networks - Facebook, Pānui ki te iwi and this website.
