Te Taiao, te tinana, e rua e rua

From a Māori perspective the human body and the universal environment are related and the terms used by the ancestors are a testament to that. This talk will explain this quintessential interrelationship through narrative and terminology, for example the word for land ‘whenua’ is the same word Māori use for the placenta in that both sustain life.

Jeremy Hapeta (Ngati Raukawa)


Rugby and its place in 'our society'

This talk will discuss the findings and results which have emerged from Jeremy’s recently defended PhD thesis: “An examination of cultural inclusion and Maori culture in New Zealand Rugby: the impact on well-being”
The size and shape of contemporary rugby players is a talking point across all ages, sexes and grades, this is a holistic and honest examination of New Zealand rugby from its players to its teams, a down-to-earth, hearty and inclusive presentation that will connect with anyone who’s ever watched, played or connected with rugby.
