‘Ātui’anga ki te Tango - October 2018

The first collaboration between Kōrero o te 'Ōrau (local NGO focusing on environmental and indigenous issues in the Cook Islands), Manava Ora o te Ivi Maori (culture-based school for Cook Islands Māori children), and Ruatonga Māpū (church youth group), teaching children life skills and traditional practices.  This school holiday programme was made possible by support from parents and volunteers who believe in what the organizations are trying to achieve, and graciously supported by the Ministry of Agriculture Cook Islands through the Ridge to Reef Project Cook Islands.
