What is most important in the world?
It is the people!
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type of virus called a coronavirus.
COVID-19 is a serious issue for our whānau Māori.
With increasing cases across the motu, it’s important that you and your whānau stay safe and healthy.
Tikanga is at the core of everything we do as Māori, it encompasses our unique culture, values and beliefs.
Our kawa is like our set of guidelines and actions that we take to show our tikanga (our culture, values and beliefs).
The wonderful thing about our kawa is that it is able to adapt and change to suit our challenges and opportunities.
For now, it’s important that our kawa temporarily changes to suit our challenges with COVID-19.
