Reggae band House of Shem will be the big drawcard for the Ngāti Pāhauwera Day. The free whānau event is expected to draw hundreds of descendants of Ngāti Pāhauwera to the Wairoa Community Day for a day of togetherness and pride.
The trust has organised buses from Hastings and Napier to bring whanau to the gathering.
A rangatahi forum from 9.30am to 12pm will give an opportunity for our young people of all ages to share their ideas and thoughts for the future of Ngāti Pāhauwera.
Entertainment starting at 12pm includes House of Shem, Kahurangi Dance Theatre, Black Katz, Edward Waaka and kiddies karaoke and dance competition. A photographic display of Ngāti Pāhauwera will be on show to demonstrate an historical collection the iwi is maintaining for future generations.
Free activities will include use of indoor pool and will spill outdoors to rides, slides, photo fun booth, kaumatua mirimiri and sausage sizzle.
