National Commemoration

Te Au Mārie initiatives

National Themes

This is a Tier 1 Anniversary, and national themes have been agreed to support this important kaupapa. These are:

  • Voyaging
  • Education
  • Arts, culture & heritage
  • Ecological restorations
  • 2019 events

Te Au Mārie will be working alongside the Ministry of Culture & Heritage to support local events as well as the Taitokerau Northland’s participation in the national commemoration.

Te Au Mārie initiatives

The Te Au Mārie focus is on legacy projects that will provide benefit for future generations and we have identified a number of key initiatives that they which intend to achieve as part of this major commemoration. These are grouped into three areas relating to:

  • Our Land Whenua
  • Our Sea Moana
  • Our People Tāngata

We hope to support and encourage other initiatives and projects that align with this kaupapa, particularly where we can assist with national coordination (for example education). Please sign up to our mailing list to get involved.
