A Celebration of Kaitiakitaka: Te Ao Māori, Science, Nature and Art
Join us for an entertaining evening showcasing new works by an array of artists exploring kaitiakitaka – stewardship and sustainability. Enjoy the art then bid for your favourite!
Proceeds of the auction will help send five Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Ōtepoti students to the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education (WIPCE) in Toronto to present a one-hour workshop 'Science through an indigenous lens – a moth study', following their Ahi Pepe MothNet journey.
Ahi Pepe MothNet is a growing citizen science project that explores the network of connections and links that make up the ecological world. Its goal is to reconnect everyone, especially students, teachers and whanau with the natural world and use New Zealand moths as an indicator of functioning native ecosystems.
E iti noa ana nā te aroha – a small thing given with love.
