The theme for the 2017 Hui-ā-Tau is Hangaia tō whare korero. The event is being sponsored by Rotorua Library, Rotorua Lakes Council and Te Puia and will be held at Tangatarua Marae at Toi-Ohomai Institute of Technology, Rotorua.
Based on the legacy of Mauriora Kingi, the programme will look at how the Rotorua Lakes Council is supporting Mātauranga Māori practices within local government structures. Presenters will offer strategies that implement Mātauranga Māori values within and provide partnerships models that encourage meaningful engagement. Finally the programme will look at professional development opportunities for librarians and Te Rōpū Whakahau's contribution toward Mātauranga Māori concepts within Libraries.

Registration is now open. Registration forms and online registration are available on the Te Rōpū Whakahau website.
