Tuku atu, Tuku mai, a wānanga designed for schools across Te Hiku o Te Ika to teach traditional mahi toi has been received well by participants. Marewa Nathan says organisers didn't foresee how excited students would be to be part of the revitalisation of tukutuku.
She says there are obvious benefits for mental and spiritual health. Nathan says tukutuku is for everyone regardless of gender and hopes more will get involved with mahi toi Māori.
