Tōia Mai | UC Māori noho marae

Te Waka Pākākano | the Office of the AVC Māori, Pacific & Equity invite you to attend Tōia mai tuatahi, a two-day fun-filled noho at Wheke, Rapaki Marae. Whether this is your first time on a marae or your hundredth, this noho marae is an awesome opportunity to engage in a whole lot of activities with other ākonga Māori and Kaiurungi (Māori support staff).


Eke Tangaroa | Celebration for Māori graduates and graduands

Eke Tangaroa celebrates the achievements of our Māori students at the University of Canterbury.

This event is an opportunity for our ākonga of Māori descent to be presented to their whānau, the Māori community and the University. Each student is presented with a prized pounamu specifically designed for Māori graduates at UC. The celebration for Māori Graduates and Graduands is not an official graduation ceremony so graduates are also encouraged to attend the UC graduation ceremonies. More information about UC graduation ceremonies including regalia hire.

Eke Tangaroa will be held on Thursday 16 December 2021 at 9.00am in the Engineering Core, Creyke Road, Ilam.
