E Tū Māori

Māori participation

He rōpū kiritaki matua ngā Māori i te rāngai tākaro, kori tinana, me te hākinakina. 

He tokomaha ngā tama me ngā kōtiro Māori e whakauru ana, ā, he rahi ake te pāpātanga tūao a ngā kōtiro Māori. He rahi hoki te tūao a ngā pakeke Māori, ā, he mahi ā-whānau hoki ētahi momo hākinakina. Ahakoa e pai hāere ana ēnei pāpātanga, e kitea ana te taunakitanga inā tata nei, kua heke, kua koke tonu te heke a te whakaurunga a ngā Māori.

E ū ana a Ihi Aotearoa ki te whakanui ake me te whakawhanake i te whakaurunga Māori, me te kaiārahitanga e whakarato ana ki te hauora o ngā Māori rātou ko ngā tāngata katoa o Aotearoa mā:  

  1. te whakanui i te mana o Te Tiriti o Waitangi me ngā mātāpono Tiriti o te Rāngai, te Kaitiakitanga, me te Whakaurunga. Ka koke tonu tā mātou tupu i te āheinga a tō mātou rōpū kia rite pai ai mā ngā haepapa Tiriti.
  2. te tautoko i ngā ara kōhure ahurea e oti ai i a Ngāi Māori te whakauru me te angitu hei Māori.

 

Māori are a key customer grouping in the play, active recreation and sport sector.  

Māori boys and girls participate in high numbers and Māori girls volunteer at high rates. Adult Māori participation and volunteering is high and Māori have intergenerational participation in some sport codes. While these rates are encouraging, recent evidence confirms that Māori participation has, and continues to, decline.  

Ihi Aotearoa is committed to increasing and improving Māori participation and leadership that contributes to the wellbeing of Māori and all New Zealanders by: 

  1. upholding the mana of Te Tiriti o Waitangi & the Treaty principles of Partnership, Protection, Participation.  We will continue to grow our organisation cultural capability to be better equipped to meet our Te Tiriti responsibilities.   
  2. supporting cultural distinctive pathways that enable Māori to participate and succeed as Māori.

Tapuwaekura

He wāhanga a Te Whakamātaunga Tapuwaekura o tētahi kaupapa umanga kotahi a Ihi Aotearoa, te Manatū Hauora, me te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga, kua tapaina te Healthy Active Learning. Ko tā te kaupapa he whakatairanga, he whakapai ake i te hauora o ngā tamariki me ngā rangatahi mā te mahi ōkiko kounga, te kai me te inu hauora i ngā kura me ngā ratonga mātauranga huri noa i Aotearoa.

The Tapuwaekura Pilot is part of a joint agency initiative between Ihi Aotearoa and the Ministries of Health and Education called Healthy Active Learning. The initiative aims to promote and improve wellbeing of tamariki and rangatahi through quality physical activity, healthy eating and drinking in schools, kura and learning services across Aotearoa.

MaraeFit Aotearoa

E rata ana ngā Māori ki te ngahau me te hākinakina ina koa e whakakotahi ai I ngā whānau, ngā hapū me ngā iwi. Mā ngā marae me ngā whare tapere e honohono ai i ngā whānau, ngā hapū, me ngā iwi ki ō rātou whakapapa, waiata, tikanga, reo hoki. He kaha, he pukutohe hoki te hononga o te marae ki tōna iwi. 

Nō te mārama ki te painga o te hohenga ōkiko me tana whakauta ki te hauora, me te hirahira o ngā tāngata, me tō rātou hononga ki te marae i puta mai ai a MaraeFit.

Māori enjoy active recreation and sport especially when it enables being together as whānau, hapū and iwi. Marae are whare tapere the enables whānau, hapū, iwi to connect with their whakapapa, waiata, tikanga and te reo. The connection between marae and its people is strong and unrelenting.

MaraeFit emerged through understanding the value of physical activity and its contribution to wellbeing and the importance of people and their connection to marae.
