In response to his stories we joined forces with the students from Autahi and worked on a variety of workshops around story telling.
There were drama workshops retelling the Maori creation story. This group shared their piece to an audience in the afternoon.
Another workshop worked on retelling the story of Maui and the Sun in a Kamishibai style. Which is a Japanese form of story telling
Puppet Pals was a popular workshop and students retold the story of Ngake and Whataitai, the taniwha of Wellington.
We also had students creating paper puppets and comic strips retelling Maori stories. So great to spend time with Autahi to build our relationships and also so awesome to teamwork, kindness and creativity in action.
