Raranga teacher Jenny Firmin from Whanganui says teaching whānau how to weave rather than doing it for them creates opportunities for them to think about how they are preparing to welcome their new pēpi into the world.

The tikanga associated with harakeke weaving and wahakura have many similarities with pregnancy, birth and raising tamariki, and Hineteiwaiwa is the goddess of both weaving and childbirth.

Ms Firmin is part of a wahakura wānanga this weekend at Te Hotu Manawa o Rangitāne Marae in Palmerston North hosted by Mokopuna Ora, in partnership with Best Care Whakapai Hauora.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology
The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.
National's new draconian Oranga Tamariki welfare reforms are anti-Māori, anti-women and anti-human

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
