January 11th – 13th 2023Cultural Monitoring Programme

Ngāti Rahiri is inviting interested whānau to register for Cultural Monitoring Training. We have some opportunities coming up in the New Year for some whānau to be employed as casual Cultural Monitors
The 2.5-day course that will be held on 11-13 January – dependant on interest. This training will be at no cost to hapu members.

If you want to learn more about protecting our Wāhi Tapu sites and your own cultural safety and can contribute some time to undertake paid cultural monitoring work on a casual basis, then this course could be very interesting and rewarding.  It includes training on a Cultural Monitor’s obligations to the iwi, scenarios, tikanga, group exercises and industry Health and Safety.  This type of short project work would suit tertiary students or people with current flexible part-time work who would like some more hours.  It would be great to have a mix of young fit people who could undertake more challenging work in hill country, as well as our more mature whānau members.
