Te Wānanga o Raukawa
This website is a koha from Te Wānanga o Raukawa to support people ending violence.
Te Wānanga o Raukawa is a tikanga Māori tertiary education provider based in Ōtaki, Aotearoa. It was established in 1981 by the Raukawa Marae Trustees under the principles of the iwi development strategy, Whakatupuranga Rua Mano: Generation 2000. Whakatupuranga Rua Mano captured the health and wellbeing aspirations of the ART Confederation of Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Te Āti Awa ki Whakarongotai and Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga, the founding iwi of Te Wānanga o Raukawa.
The four founding principles of Whakatupuranga Rua Mano were:
- Our people are our wealth: develop and retain
- Te reo is a taonga: halt the decline and revive
- The marae is our principle home: maintain and respect
- Self-determination: find opportunities to advance our aspirations.
This project was started to support communities based on the Wānanga experience with Te Kawa o te Ako. Te Kawa o te Ako requires everyone at the wānanga to be responsible for their behaviour, in particular any behaviour that affects the learning and teaching potential of staff and students. If someone’s behaviour makes it harder for them or others to learn or teach, that behaviour needs to stop, and they might need to show that they can be trusted in future.
All activities of Te Wānanga o Raukawa are guided by a set of kaupapa or principles.
