Mana Tane and Mana Wahine


Programme Concepts and Content:

The programme is derived from a Maori values base that uses Maori philosophy, knowledge and practices to emphasise the relationship of the individual with their socio-cultural environment. The programme is a process for integrating traditional Maori cultural values, philosophies, knowledge and practices into the everyday lives of participants.

The Mana Tane and Mana Wahine programme offers a culturally responsive programme for Maori to consider Maori culture as a pathway for solutions to:

Address the underlying causes of negative lifestyle choices
Current lifestyle audit
Develop positive goals for the future
Enhancing their lives
Introduce and explore further self-awareness
Knowledge around who they are and where they come from
Improving relationships


This programme is delivered on the tranquil setting of Otakou marae that is situated at the harbour entry on our very own Otago Peninsula. The participants and their supporting facilitators will stay noho for two nights, three days enjoying nutritious, healthy kai, exercise, positive social interactions, within a calm, safe and controlled environment.
