This year, Te Kura Tuarua o Te Mānukatūtahi is being led by kaitātaki tāne Joey Reriti and kaitātaki wahine Rangi Te Ataura Biddle.
Based in Ngāti Awa territory, most kaihaka affiliate to both Ngāti Awa and neighbouring iwi, Ngāi Tūhoe.
The designs on their kākahu depict the tupuna whāea, Wairaka.
Tutors of Te Kura Tuarua o Te Mānukatūtahi are Edward Te Moana, Tākerei Hikoroa-Peck, Helene Te Moana and Naomi Herewini-Houia.
This year they have chosen to share with us their waiata-ā-ringa, Aku Raukura.
