Writing as a grindstone. Finished writing, unfinished writing, writing ideas, things that I'll never get round to writing, other things. Grinding it out, grinding away. Writing some more.

Kei Tua o te Pae hui update

More information about the hui has gone up on their website, including video of a couple of the organisers talking about the hui, a programme, and information about all of the speakers. Registrations close this Friday (24 August), so spread the word if you know anyone who might be interested in exploring the challenges of kaupapa Māori in te ao hurihuri . Also, there’s a number of student places at a reduced price of $250 (includes all food and accommodation at Te Wānanga o Raukawa).

The programme includes:
  • Whatarangi Winiata—Building Māori futures on kaupapa tuku iho
  • Ngāhuia Murphy—Te Awa Atua: The river of life: menstruation in the precolonial Māori world
  • Mereana Pitman—Violence and the distortion of tikanga
  • Leonie Pihama—Te Ao Hurihuri
  • Kim McBreen—It’s about whānau: oppression, sexuality and mana
  • Meihana Durie—He Kawa Oranga: Enhancing Māori achievement in the 21st century through the application of tikanga and kawa
  • Moana Jackson—hui reflections
  • Panel discussions:
    • Hemi Toia, Ani Mikaere, and Jessica Hutchings on Changing worlds, changing tikanga
    • Naomi Simmonds, Caleb Royal, and Mera Penehira on Tikanga as liberation

There's also workshop time, so we can all talk with each other. I'm really excited by the conversations that will happen.
