Ethnic Representatives Participate in Poukai as Part of Welcoming Communities Programme

On Monday 10th of April, a group of representatives from ethnic communities had the privilege of attending a Poukai at Te-Papa-O-Rotu Marae as guests of Kingii Tuheitia. This was possible thanks to the support of Te Haa o Te Whenua (THAWK) and Hamilton City Council’s Ethnic Communities Advisor Jovi Abellanosa, as part of the #welcomingcommunities programme.
The Poukai is an annual series of visits by the Māori king to Kīngitanga marae around and beyond the Waikato region, a tradition that dates back to the late 19th century.
