Closing Remarks (By Lynn Batten)


Thursday, 6 July, 2017**

Pōwhiri, a Māori welcome ceremony, provides a special opportunity for visitors to experience Māori traditions. As a start to the conference, ATIS is privileged to be welcomed by people of the local Māori communities. The welcome takes about 45 minutes from when people arrive, and includes refreshments as follows:


8.30am ATIS attendees are asked to wait outside room MBS2.15 where they can also pick up their registration bags at the registration desk.Rita explains the Pōwhiri procedure.

Karanga – Rita calls us in and directs us to our seats. Everyone sits.

8.35am Haahi Walker offers a prayer. Everyone stands for the himene (hymn) that follows, then sits down again.

Haahi welcomes everyone in Māori, and when he’s finished, the hosts (led by Rita) sing in support. Haahi explains what he has said, and offers the visitors an opportunity to respond in their own way.

8.45am Clark Thomborson responds briefly, thanking the welcoming party on behalf of ATIS.

8.50am Haahi responds briefly and demonstrates how to do the hongi, its meaning and purpose of bringing people together on their arrival into this region in partnership with Massey University. He invites the front line of visitors to come and greet the hosts, by hongi and/or shaking hands.

9.00am Haahi brings the formalities to a conclusion with a short prayer inviting everyone to have a cup of something and a biscuit.

9:10am The welcoming party leaves while conference attendees remain seated and the conference is opened by Lynn Batten.
