Kia Ora, my name is Michelle Whiu and I have the role of Kai Awhina for the Kaipātiki Community Facilities Trust (KCFT). Within this role I will engage with our local Kaipātiki Community for the overall hauora, wellness & wellbeing for our Māori community.
Working in a community development model of practise I will organise and tautoko/support different Kaupapa within our Kaipātiki community such as, wānanga/workshops, weaving wānanga/workshops, & events, using Ngā Whare Tapa Whā model of wellness…
Taha Tinana - physical health, Taha Wairua (spiritual health), Taha Whānau (family health), Taha Hinengoro (mental health) whilst staying tūturu to Tikanga Māori practises. I will continue to connect and maintain relationships with different roopu within our area, with a focus on Te Ao Māori.
