23 September - 3 October 2021

 

Kōanga is heralded by the blossoming of the kōwhai and the call of the pīpīwharauroa as it returns to our shores. This is traditionally a time of joining together and combining efforts to prepare the maara for planting.  We see this festival as a chance to prepare the fertile ground of our Auckland Māori stories and storytellers, developing potential for our stories to flourish.
