Te Whetū Rēhua – The Guiding Star
Te Whetū Rēhua is the framework originally developed to communicate the Māori concepts and principles which collectively define ‘as Māori’ participation in sport and recreation, for the He Oranga Poutama initiative context.
Te Whetū Rehua consists of five key values vital for Māori development that reflect the diverse reality that Māori now live in.
What is the value of the Te Whetū Rēhua?
- It is Māori-centered and culturally relevant to Māori where it can assist users to distinguish boundaries about focusing their efforts to meet Māori aspirations through play, sport & recreating activities
- The framework provides insight into the cultural structure to continue exploring and growing our understanding as Māori participating in sport and recreation – and its contribution to positive Māori identity, wellbeing, partnerships and self-reliance.
