Will I need to have a pōwhiri if I am visiting Te Āwhina Marae? Open or Close
If you are visiting the health services as a client, you will not need a pōwhiri. Guests visiting the Marae for a Hui, function or special event will need a pōwhiri. However, visitors need to take into consideration their individual situations and it is best to contact our office to discuss your need for a pōwhiri.
I know that my group needs to have a pōwhiri. What do I need to do? Open or Close
Your roopu (group) will need to organise a kaikaranga (caller) and a Kaikōrero (male speaker) to represent your roopu. If you are unable to source suitable people, we might be able to give you a few sources; A koha for their support is appreciated. Once you have these organised, the last thing that your roopu needs is a waiata (song) to sing at the pōwhiri after your kaikōrero has spoken. Each time a kaikōrero from your group speaks it is followed by a waiata, therefore if you have three speakers, you will need three waiata.
