Te mangangatanga o ngā kaituhi Māori / Māori Branch

Nau mai, haere mai ki te mangangatanga o ngā kaituhi Māori.

Welcome to the new-and-continually-forming NZSA branch for Māori writers. This is an evolving space to bring together, support, and uplift the voices of kaituhi from across the motu and beyond.

Akin to Te Pō-tahuri-mai-ki-taiao, we are in a state of formation, readying ourselves to fully come into being. An official launch held over a weekend in early 2024 will mark this event.
Where: Te Tairāwhiti
When: Date coming soon (drop us a line to be advised as soon as it’s confirmed)

As well as hui, we will be offering professional development wānanga – both kanohi ki te kanohi, and online. If you wish to register your interest, or have any requests for particular topics, themes, speakers, we welcome your thoughts and feedback.

Come join us on this haerenga! (Already a regional branch member? Fear not e hoa, you can be a member of both.)

To join our rōpu, and/or for pātai and pānui, please do get in touch! We welcome you, and your whakaaro to ensure this space is as valuable and welcoming as it can be for you and kaituhi Māori katoa.

Kaiwhakahaere hōtaka: Natasha Lampard

Te Māngai Māori ki te Poari: Michelle Rahurahu
