Te Tohu Toi Tangata - Bachelor of Humanities
Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina experienced a 3-month exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”
“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”. We are now taking enquiries for Semester 2.

Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.
