On Easter weekend, Te Papa Tākaro o Te Arawa, Dr. Ihirangi Heke, Toi Tangata and kaiako from Te Kura o Kaikohe entered into Piopiotahi (Milford Sounds) to run the Routeburn Track.
The journey was not about the distance or 'conquering' the Tarahaka ranges and completing the track. This experience was about retracing whakapapa connections to a place, recognising different behaviours and characteristics in the environment and testing our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical fitness.

Te Papa Tākaro o Te Arawa and Dr. Heke talk about the descendants of Makatītī and how they represent different terrains.
From clay, to gravel, to soft grass, all of these different terrains are represented by atua (elemental connections to our environment).
You can interact with various terrains at steeper gradients and during the wet or cold to experience different characteristics of those atua.

Te Papa Tākaro o Te Arawa, Dr. Ihirangi Heke and EOTC present Atuatanga.
Dr. Heke is at Whangapipiro, located at the Waipa end of the Redwoods Forest in Rotorua. Today, he discusses how we can measure time for physical activity and for programmes according to the degradation of variables in the environment. For example, the comparison between fresh green ponga leaves and dried brown ones can be used as a measurement for time.
