Te Waharoa Pānui

Te Waharoa is a pānui created by the Te Ao Mārama exec, showcasing positive stories from across the Māori oral health community. Central to this is our kaupapa ‘Hei oranga niho mo te iwi Māori’ – Good oral health for Māori, for life.

The name 'Te Waharoa' was chosen to represent this pānui for two reasons. In te reo Māori, Te Waharoa denotes the entranceway to a Pā, a very important site in te ao Māori for whānau, hapū and iwi. The word waha can also be translated to mouth, representing the kaupapa that Te Ao Mārama and its membership work in and/or around.

Do you have a story or any mahi that you would like to share with te whānau ō Te Ao Mārama? If you would like to feature in Te Waharoa, please send an outline of your kaupapa, along with a photo to
