Will I need to have a Powhiri if I am visiting Te Āwhina Marae?
If you are visiting the health services as a client, you will not need a powhiri.
Guests visiting the Marae for a Hui, function or special event will need a powhiri. However, visitors need to take into consideration their individual situations and it is best to contact our office to discuss your need for a powhiri.
I know that my group needs to have a powhiri. What do I need to do?
Your roopu (group) will need to organise a kaikaranga (caller) and a Kaikorero (male speaker) to represent your roopu. If you are unable to source suitable people, we might be able to give you a few sources; A koha for their support is appreciated. Once you have these organised, the last thing that your roopu needs is a waiata (song) to sing at the powhiri after your kaikorero has spoken. Each time a kaikorero from your group speaks it is followed by a waiata, therefore if you have three speakers, you will need three waiata.
