Tuwharakurupeti is a significant site for Ngāti Whakaue the Haukainga and saw a series of pivotal battles fought in the area in the 1800s. So it is fitting that these games will once again see the best of our rangatahi compete against one another reflecting a strength and determination that no doubt has been passed down for generations.
Registrations will be posted on Te Papa Tākaro's Facebook page in the coming days. Te Papa Tākaro is also taking registrations on the day of the event up til 9.30am.
The Te Arawa Games Shield will be up for contention as this is a Te Arawa Games event – this will be a regular occurrence from now on at every Te Arawa Games sporting event; thank you to the mangai o Te Arawa who supported this tikanga.
Tumahaurangi Hapū, as the current Te Arawa Games TOA (current holder of the shield) will hand over the shield at the Whakatau.
The please contact your Mangai or Delegate for your whānau, hapū, iwi, if you want to kōrero, our team are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
