Saturday Tamariki Kohanga plays local Indigenous games

Our Saturday tamariki kohanga program for primary school aged tamariki has been playing the traditional games of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures over the past few months. Some of the games include “buroinjiri”; “Kungirruna”; “Birray”; “Keentan”; “munhanganing”; “Gorri” and using boomerangs and other traditional instruments.

We plan to hold a special class in two weeks time to play these taonga of the tangata whenua tuatahi – o te whenua nei, ki Ahitereiria!
