Mana Tane

July 12, 2018, 11:34 a.m.

Whangarei Dads recently held a ‘Mana Tāne’ hui in Otangarei to korero about men’s role within Te Ao Māori. Facilitator Julian Reweti (Ngāti Hine) discussed his whakaaro around ‘Mana Tāne’ – a Te Ao Māori approach to build resilience, connections and nurture all fathers to become rangatira within our whānau & our communities.

Some of the values ‘Mana Tāne’ would abide by includes:

  • Mana tangata – humanity focused
  • Mana whānau motuhake – self reliance
  • Mana Māori mouthake – development in freedom
  • Mana I te whenua – nation building

Julian uses the examples of Ngāpuhi tūpuna including Hone Hika, Te Kēmara, Tamati Wāka Nene & Hone Heke – just to name a few – as ‘Mana Tāne’.

This korero developed from wānanga within his own whānau & his past mahi working with rangatahi in both the education & court sectors.
