Ngā Whenu O Te Wahakura
The many strands of wahakura.

The SUDI Prevention team would like to share the first edition of our information guide on wahakura, Ngā Whenu o Te Wahakura- the many strands of wahakura.

This living document is a collation of information which centralises how wahakura supports the hauora of whānau. It documents the different understandings of wahakura from the experiences of weavers and whānau. It seeks to acknowledge the fluidity of mātauranga Māori and the vast benefits of wahakura within the SUDI Prevention space and beyond. The information collated for this work is ongoing, therefore, if you would like to share your kōrero about wahakura with our team, please contact the team at

Wānangatia Te Wahakura

The National SUDI Prevention Coordination Service (NSPCS) coordinated the Wānangatia te Wahakura series across Aotearoa to gain insights at a local level on wahakura development and capacity. The intention of these regionally based wānanga was to coordinate collective perspectives and share mātauranga across sectors.
