A Manurewa Local Board member is encouraging schools to pick up a new digital resource to teach the area's rich Māori history.

Local teacher Te Ariki Tuiono worked with mana whenua iwi Ngāti Te Ata on Te Manurewa o Tamapahore podcasts and books.

Melissa Atama says it includes haka and waiata that will bring the whole community closer.

"If all our kura in Manurewa learn it, they can come together throughout the year and all smash it out in a public space, which I am going to see if I can get that at the bilingual hīkoi next year, and just that sense of connection and identity and that we all belong here and we are proud to be from Manurewa," she says.
