This initiative aimed to increase awareness amongst ahi kā whānau of their historical roles and responsibilities as kaitiaki, whilst at the same time contributing to whanaungatanga within Rangitāne whānau, hapū and iwi. Key project activities centred around a series of storytelling wānanga on various cultural and spiritual sites that are integral to Rangitāne identity. Resources developed through this initiative have sustained the customary values and practices of Rangitāne whānau and enabled ahi kā whānau to increase their knowledge of the physical and metaphysical world of their tūpuna.
