2-Day Hui to Reflect on Strength Based Stories: 22 July 2012

Ngā Tapuwae o Hape (the Footsteps of Hape)

Hosted by Makaurau Marae together with the Human Rights Commission and the Disabled Persons Assembly

A hui to reflect upon our strength based stories (such as Hape’s) and how these stories inform our understanding and promotion of disability and indigenous rights, to discuss leadership on the rights of disabled people by te hunga hauā and to talk about how whanau hauā can work in partnership with the Human Rights Commission to better promote and protect the rights of all disabled people.

The name Ngā Tapuwae o Hape acknowledges that we follow in the footsteps of Hape, as we draw upon the strengths of our ancestors and foster leadership amongst te hunga hauā.

If there are any disability related needs or ways of enhancing participation that we need to be aware of please let Leilani know.

Unfortunately disability assistance dogs are not able to be taken onto Makaurau Marae however for those who use dogs ordinarily the HRC will cover the costs of employing a disability assistance person for the day.

Note: This is primarily an event for people with personal experience of disability and mental-health problems. Service-providers and family members are welcome. There is recognition that these are not necessarily always separate groups.
