You are all invited to come and sit together on the banks of the Ōtākaro Avon River at lunchtime on Wednesday 13 November to acknowledge the rivers of Waitaha/Canterbury through song and weaving. While kairaranga weave harakeke, we will sing waiata together, listen to karakia, stories and music that celebrate this life-sustaining water that connects us all.
