Mihi whakatau

At the College of Education, Health and Human Development, we welcome new students to their studies and our community of learning with a Mihi whakatau. The Mihi whakatau is a traditional Māori welcome ceremony.

The purpose of the Mihi whakatau is to remove the tapu of the Manuhiri (visitors) to make them one with the Tangata Whenua (Home people). It is a gradual process of the Manuhiri and the Tangata Whenua coming together.

Please arrive at the appointed time for the Mihi whakatau, so that the process can be explained and there will be time to practice the waiata (song) that the Manuhiri will sing to support their speaker.

This is a formal process, so please ensure that all electronic equipment (cellphone/ipod etc) is turned off during the entire Mihi whakatau.

Recommended attire:

  • Women: a modest skirt for the Mihi whakatau, or tidy semi-formal attire (no shorts, short skirts, revealing tops etc)
  • Men: long pants, neat dress.

Noho Marae

At the College of Education, Health and Human Development students will participate in a noho marae. They will stay overnight at one of the local marae. Students will participate in a Mihi whakatau and will develop their understanding of marae kawa (protocols) and tikanga Māori (values). They will make links to their future classroom practice, the curriculum and Tātaiako – Cultural Competencies for Teachers of Māori Learners.
