An important aspect of this Conference is for participants to interact with and learn more about the biocultural heritage, vision and issues of the local indigenous hosts – Ngāti Awa, the tribes of the Mataatua Region and the tribal university Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi. As such, there are scheduled times within the Conference to meet with elders and youth from the area, to workshop on an issue selected by the hosts, as well as daily sessions to learn a waiata (a traditional Māori song) from the local area and/or a haka (traditional challenge dance).
