Au.E! Rangatahi Resilience Building Hui

Te Rau Ora and Te Puni Kōkiri are proud to be bringing Au.E! Rangatahi Resilience Building Hui to four locations this year. Deliberately mobilised to Māori communities, these hui raise suicide awareness, build resilience, and inform Rangatahi about strategies in various areas of life, (such as healthy relationships, the importance of identity and belonging; effective communication; keeping cyber safe; having positive self-worth and broad topics for overall wellbeing).

After being taken into nine communities in Aotearoa, Au.E! are a Rangatahi Māori movement. The hui is fun-filled, and Māori with creative activities and learning interweaved in the jam-packed one-day event. With multiple workshops provided in the one-day event, there are dynamic lessons and experiences during the day presenting messages through diverse activities such as waiata, raranga, rongoā, wahine ora, tane ora, poitūkohu (basketball), korikori tinana (such as Crossfit), toi (art). The overall aim is to provide another world to Rangatahi Māori to build their capacity and capability as young people, with their whānau, and communities through a dynamic event that delivers rangatahi suicide prevention awareness, knowledge and responses that rangatahi can enact as they need.
