Vā Moana Reading Group June 2021

Kia ora koutou,

We hope you are well, and ready for our days to be getting longer now that we've reached the winter solstice! Our June reading group will be held next Wednesday at Four Shells Kava Lounge. Many thanks to Todd for hosting us.

We will continue reading The Woven Universe alongside two other texts, an essay and short poem:

  • Te Ahukaramū Charles Royal, God, Man and Universe: A Māori View. In The Woven Universe: Selected Writings of Rev. Māori Marsden (2003).
  • Natalie Robertson, Nga Whatu-ora: We The Living Are The Seeing Eyes Of Our Sleeping Ancestors (2016).
  • Lehua M. Taitano, Shore Song (2018).

The reading group will be held on Wednesday 30 June, 1.30-4.00pm at Four Shells Kava Lounge (12/210 Victoria Street West, CBD). You are also welcome to join us via Zoom.

This is open to Vā Moana affiliates and candidates, Māori and Pacific postgraduate students, as well as extended 'āiga and those in their final year of their undergraduate degrees. Please RSVP to autpacificspaces@gmail.com.
