He Pī Ka Rere
Posted 27 August, 2014
When a bird is ready, it stetches out its wings, faces the wind and launches into the air: He Pi Ka Rere!
He Pi Ka Rere draws on Mana Atua, Mana Whenua, Mana Tangata and other Matauranga Maori and indigenous knowledge to bring the joy of movement to inform the growth and development of the child.
Since 2012, Toi Tangata has delivered He Pi Ka Rere to 35 Kohanga Reo in the Auckland region, in partnership with Sport Waitakere, and would like to explore with Enviroschools ways to expand this kaupapa to early learning environments throughout the country. See some videos of He Pi Ka Rere in action here.
