The Dunedin Puaka Matariki Festival celebrates the Māori New Year through a citywide programme of community events, including shared feasts, Mātauraka Māori wellness and science lectures, Toi Māori visual arts, music and dance performance.
Paakiwaha is an exciting weekly two hour current affairs program hosted by Dale Husband and featuring topical national kaupapa from a Maori perspective.
Since it began in 2002, Paakiwaha has made a key contribution to Waatea’s vision of providing a Māori current affairs format in English, a forum that provides a uniquely Māori perspective on issues affecting primarily Māori, but ultimately all New Zealanders.
The aim has always been to provide opportunities for listeners to have a better understanding of kaupapa that may not get fair treatment on mainstream media, while allowing Māori and non-Māori to engage in critical debates on those issues.
Nothing can replace the pleasure of turning the pages of the written book.
