It's been years in the making and now Stanley Conrad says the long-anticipated whare wānanga, Te Whetū Mārama is nearing completion. It was the dream of the late Sir Hekenukumaingaiwi Puhipi to erect a whare wānanga that taught traditional navigation, a dream that will soon be realised by those he taught. Plans are underway for the final steps that will see another generation carry waka traditions to the future.
