Pōwhiri and Class Talks


Every new student and staff member is encouraged to attend a formal pōwhiri at Ngā Kete Wānanga Marae to welcome them as they begin their journey - connecting with fellow students, staff and the institute.

Contact maraebookings@manuka.ac.nz to enquire about booking a pōwhiri.

Marae bookings work on a first in first served basis and we will endeavour to fill sessions to capacity (200) where we have a number of smaller groups.

Refer to the MIT Marae Info Guide for information on marae protocol.

Class talks

Fun, simple and informative class talks are another opportunity to help new students know who's who and to build cultural awareness and competency through a Māori world view. Use the form below to let us know what time slot and where your class is, and we will come to you.
