Regional / Local MeetingsHui ā-rohe: Regional meetings

Regional meetings provide a valuable repatriation discussion forum.


Hui ā-rohe and wānanga are an important part of our repatriation programme. They provide a forum for iwi to discuss issues regarding repatriation, with Te Papa and with each other. At these hui we gather feedback in order to provide further support to iwi.

There are three kaupapa whakaheaere for hui ā-rohe.

  1. Facilitate discussion to find appropriate final resting places for with kōiwi tangata Māori with unclear iwi or regional provenance.

  2. Provide an overview of the Karanga Aotearoa Repatriation Programme and updates on recent activity.

  3. Seek views regarding the continuation of the repatriation programme.
