From the 11th - 14th February more than 30 of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s senior researchers including our leadership team and new Board Chair, Kerensa Johnston, were based at Rānana (Ruakā) Marae on the Whanganui River, for our annual Principal Investigators Wānanga. For four days, we came together within the valley of the Te Awa Tupua o te Whanganui, the majestic river valley, deeply embedded in the living energy of the generous communities.
