E Tū Whānau has launched its 2018 song competition.
"Aroha - giving with no expectation of return
Whanaungatanga - it’s about being connected
Whakapapa - knowing who you are and where you belong
Mana / Manaaki - building the mana of others, through nurturing, growing and challenging
Kōrero awhi - positive communication and actions
Tikanga - doing things the right way, according to our values"
The competition started in 2016. E Tū Whānau says:
"No matter how big or small, we can all make a difference and be responsible for creating positive change within our whānau, hapū, iwi and community. E Tū Whānau is a movement for positive change in response to unacceptable levels of violence in NZ. It's about all of us taking responsibility to create the change we want, including changing bad attitudes and behaviour, and nurturing and celebrating the things that make whānau strong."
E Tū Whānau is a movement for positive change developed by the Māori Reference Group.
Songs can be entered from 14 May 2018 - 11 June 2018. Voting opens on 21 May 2018. See the E Tū Whānau Facebook page for more details and how to enter and vote.
