Noho Marae - Te ao Maori immersive Professional Development

Join Anton Matthews for an immersive professional training experience on the marae! This overnight training takes place on the beautiful Ōnuku Marae, in Akaroa and is a fully catered, overnight noho (stay).


If you are seeking an authentic, safe, and enjoyable experience on the marae, where you can learn the basics of te ao Maori, do not miss out on this opportunity, only 30 spots are available.

During your stay (noho), you will get the opportunity to experience life on the marae. You will also learn how to integrate basic reo Maori into your everyday life and work. Moreover, you will learn about the significance and relevance of Maori culture in Aotearoa today. You will also get to learn about Te Tiriti o Waitangi, its history, the principles of Te Tiriti, and why these have become such widely discussed topics of late.

You will learn the basics of tikanga and the importance of oral traditions in te ao Maori. Additionally, you will discuss karakia and learn waiata (songs) so that you are well-prepared and confident the next time you step into te ao Maori.
