Amorangi: Major Māori governance summit returns

After its inaugural online success in 2022, Tapuwae Roa’s Māori in Governance Summit is set to return in July 2024 as a hybrid event.

Recently renamed as Amorangi, the one-day summit will be held in person for the first time in Wellington as well as being live-streamed to online attendees.

Te Pūoho Kātene, Kaihautū of Tapuwae Roa says, in a statement, that with almost 1,000 online registrations in its first year “our previous summit highlighted the rapidly growing need for tikanga-led, future-focused Māori leaders in Aotearoa”.

“This year, we aim to raise that bar even higher and share the inspiring kōrero of our speakers ā tīnana with our first in-person event at Te Papa Tongarewa on 30 July.”

Tapuwae Roa says the summit brings together a range of speakers from across the Māori governance sector including Merepeka Raukawa-Tait (Chair, Whānau Ora), Jamie Tuuta (Chair, Sealord), Tania Simpson (Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge), Karen Vercoe (Te Pūmautanga o Te Arawa) and Chelsea Grootveld (Chair, JR McKenzie Trust), with more speakers to be announced, through a mix of TEDx style kōrero and interactive panels.
