He Reo Whakamana pays tribute to our guiding whakatauki.
He reo tō te wai, he reo anō tō te tangata, kotahi tonu te whakapapa, whakakotahitia.
Water has a language, and so too do people have theirs, both born of one whakapapa, united.
This whakatauki acknowledges the importance of using our language and the language of our taonga in decision-making processes. We are excited to invite tamariki to get to know their awa and use their voice to share their findings for example with local councils and other decision-makers.
