Manioro 2024 - “Our Stories” - Reclaiming our Narratives

101 Hastings Street South, Hastings

Can disruption ever be positive? Prepare yourself for an evening of inspiring, motivating and mana enhancing stories. Many of us Pasifika Rainbow+ and Takatāpui Māori have had our stories told, delivered, crafted and edited by others. Come - hear, see and be with us.

Expect to receive our stories hand wrapped in alofa (love), some delivered through song, dance, art, music and spoken word. You will hear a parents panel share their experiences navigating supporting their child who identifies as Takatāpui/Fa’afafine/Rainbow. Pūrākau - storytelling is more than relaying past experiences, we will share vā, gafa, moments of heartache, joy and laughter.

“Our Stories” evening is a whānau/family friendly event. We encourage all Rainbow+ to attend with a special invitation to bring their whānau to be enlightened by others experiences.

Don’t miss out! Limited seats available. Rainbow+ peoples and whānau may be eligible for limited tickets covered by donations. Please email for more info.
