The Matariki Living Taonga Awards Ceremony 2021, hosted by Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga, are designed to acknowledge the hard work, integrity and talent of quiet achievers and role models across our Heretaunga communities.
There are 11 categories including academic success and youth leadership, kaumātua committed to healthy, active lives, and cultural, family, environmental and business achievements.
The auspicious date of the awards coincides with the rising of Matariki signaling the Māori New Year. We look forward to gathering at this time to celebrate achievements of our people, reflect on the year that was and look together to the future.
We are pleased to hold this event at Toitoi. This venue means that everyone that wishes to take part in the Māori New Year celebrations can attend with room for much larger numbers.
