Matariki Living Taonga 2 July 2021
The Matariki Living Taonga Awards are designed to acknowledge the hard work, integrity and talent of quiet achievers and role models across our Heretaunga communities. The 2021 Ceremony, hosted by Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga, was held at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House. The auspicious date of the awards was chosen as it coincided with the rising of Matariki signaling the Māori New Year. The evening was a time to celebrate the achievements of our people, reflect on the year that was and look together to the future.
