Waka Reo

For the last 12 months Ōtaki Waka Hoe coaches and senior paddlers have worked with Māori language expert – Hēni Jacob and the Hodges Whānau to develop a Māori language resource for waka ama communities beginning with our own here in Hoe Tonga. 
We invite all Hoe Tonga clubs to register for workshops in the coming months. There is no cost for participants. The workshop happens on the water but participants will also take away a kit of reo resources to use, wear and read. Ōtaki Waka Hoe Charitable Trust will provide waka and meals. We ask only that you bring a paddle and prepare to have fun and get wet!

The first wananga is on Sunday 18 October 2020. You can register via the link below
