Karanga and whaikōrero courses offered in Ōtaki and Auckland

May 06, 2019

Update Friday 31 May:

Due to insufficient numbers we will no longer be running Karanga and Tū Whaikōrero in Ōtaki.

For Manukau, Auckland we will not be offering Tū Whaikōrero but Karanga will go ahead.

Thank you for your interest in these courses, we will be looking at offering both these qualifications in Ōtaki early 2020.


Study Poupou Karanga or Tū Whaikōrero and develop the confidence to stand as a kaikaranga or kaikōrero on your marae, kura or workplace.

For women Poupou Karanga will take you on a beautiful journey drawing on values, morals and lessons from pūrākau of our atua wāhine.  You will develop a deep appreciation of this traditional art form.

For men Poupou Tū Whaikōrero will allow you to develop an understanding and practice of the origins, functions, components and etiquette of whaikōrero that will strengthen, invigorate and reinforce the integrity of the paepae.
