NATURE BASED HEALING
In 2008 Christchurch City Council purchased land connected to the traditional waterways of Kaputahi/Kaputone Creek and Puharakekenui (Styx River). The area of land was known as a wahi mahinga kai place of resource and gathering) occupied by Ngati Urihia, descendants of Ngai Tuahuriri. The Maori name Puharakekenui connects the original grantees to the adjacent river called The Styx by Pakeha. There are a number of wahi taonga (sites of significance) along the waterways. Including clusters of waipuna (springs) which enhance the mauri of the whenua and the holistic healing and natural features of a wahi Rongoa Maori.

Pouarahi - Kahukura Maori Healing
Ko Maire Parewaiterangi Kipa ahau te teina a Aperahama Te Aika Kipa. Greetings everyone, I'm Maire and I provide project management support to Kahukura Rongoa Maori clinic and reserve. I take queries for appointments and direct them to our Tohunga Rongoa, Tohunga Whakairo and Kai-raranga.
Learning about Te Whare Tangata, Atua Wahine and Kaitiakitanga has deepened my commitment to grow rongoa Maori as a way to protect against urbanisation that harms ancestral land and waterways. When we reconnect with our tupuna, their stories, the best spaces for mara kai and native flora and fauna, new bush is revealed to us. Its nature based learning and healing at its best. Whakapai te whenua, Whakapai te tangata...E hoa ma - Nau mai tauti mai ki Kaputahi Rongoa Maori Reserve.
