Te Moko Ahurea a Paretetaitonga 

Moko Ahurea are wānanga held to conduct group moko tārua (moko kauae and moko kanohi).  Other iwi know these wānanga as Moko Papa and have become popular in recent times as people commit to the revival of our culture and to celebrate a kaupapa together.


There have been a number of discussions and wānanga held to explain this kaupapa and a final wānanga will be held on 11 August at Raketapauma Marae. This is specifically to help those going through and those interested to ask questions and to ready ourselves for the ahurea in September.


The wānanga will be held at Raketapauma as this marae was where our tupuna of the maunga and taihape region would go to for tāmoko based on the resources available near Raketapauma.  On the river the marae where tāmoko was conducted was Pungarehu.
