Kia ora, Welcome to Akona Rangitāne II

the new Rangitāne o Wairarapa Education website

Like the old website Akona Rangitāne II contains plenty of educational material that we hope will help visitors learn about Rangitāne o Wairarapa and Māori of the Wairarapa Region.

There is still information on a wide range of subjects including mythology, local Māori history, world views, tikanga, basic te reo, the natural world, basic needs ie food and social structure.

Documents, websites and other useful material produced by other sources have been utilized to provide a greater coverage and often to save duplication of an existing resource that aligns with understanding things Māori.

New features include
•    Iti Kahurangi our first education curriculum
•    A facebook feed so you can receive new information regularly and be able to interact quickly. Just send a friend request to connect.
•    A section where you can find learning resources on all sorts of subjects. With teachers in mind many of the resources have teacher notes and curriculum links.
•    New material to download including our children’s and Rangitane o Wairarapa history books.
•    Akona Rangitāne II is more visual to help find material easier. There are more photographs, paintings and murals. We are grateful to have been granted permission by artist Bronwyn Waipuka to use her beautiful paintings. See www.bwaipuka.co.nz
