Frequently asked questions:
Do I have to pay?
No, but you will have to fund your travel to and from the hui.
Can I come along if I am non-Māori?
In the past, NPM have fully supported attendance of non-Māori, however NPM are now getting very busy with lots of people interested in attending hui. Our funding that we receive is to support Māori workforce development,so to ensure we are delivering on that outcome, this hui is for Māori only. NPM will open up other hui to non-māori at some point in time, but we hope that you can appreciate and respect that we must get the foundations of the whare right first.
What if I’m a student?
Choice! Come along, we love having students involved. In fact, you bring a great fresh dynamic to the picture.
What if I cannot speak Māori?
Don’t sweat it. We are all at different levels on our journey of learning, and that is kei te pai! No one gets to decide if you are “Māori enough”, whakapapa is whakapapa.
What do I need to bring?
Sleeping bag or blanket
Ear plugs (if you cannot handle forests being cut down in the middle of the night) LOL
An open mind and heart
What time do I have to get there?
Please try to make sure you arrive 15 minutes before the 2pm powhiri. If you are unable to attend the powhiri for any reason, please get in touch so we can ensure you can be safely welcomed on to the Marae.
