Community Panui - Centennial Celebration

23 March 2021

On the 4th – 7th of June 2021 we celebrate 100 years since the arrival of Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana, te Mangai, to Tauranga Moana. In his 1921 tour through Tauranga, he came sharing the word of God through healing. Thousands flocked to see Ratana after news circulated of a Maori Miracle man who had cured the deaf, the blind, and the crippled. In his reign as Te Mangai, Ratana cured hundreds. One hundred years on and we’re inviting you all to join us in celebrating the blessings bestowed upon our moana all those years ago through waiata, wananga, keemu, mahi toi and more. Our event will be held over a 3-day wananga at Tahuwhakatiki Marae starting Friday 4th June at 4pm with a Pohiri for all our manuhiri and concluding with Entertainment Sunday night. We have accommodation available for whanau travelling from afar and kaumatua friendly options. If you plan on participating in our wananga, please sign our registration form. Registrations will help with numbers for catering and accommodation. For more information, please follow 1 of our Social Media Pages.
