Mānawatia a Matariki! Ngā mihi o te wā e te iwi. Nau mai whakatau mai ki te kaupapa reti rapa hou nei.

Come along to the first event of the Richter City Roller Derby joint home season series with Swamp City Roller Derby from Palmerston North!

A little bit more about "He Whānau Reti Rapa Kotahi":

Ko wai mātou? Who are we?

We are two tīma reti rapa (roller derby teams) from Pōneke (Wellington) and Te Papaioea (Palmerston North) and we are about to join forces to create our own interleague tonamana whakangahau (fun tournament) to whakanuia (celebrate) not only our awesome sport, but to whakatairanga (promote) and whakaatu ki te hapori (demonstrate) to the rest of the roller derby community in Aotearoa, the importance of encompassing mātāpono māori (māori principles) such as whanaungatanga, kotahitanga and manaakitanga within your organisation. We all should be active in working towards decolonising our leagues and making our spaces inclusive for all. Tīhei mauri ora!

Thank you to Karangawai Marsh for designing the amazing tohu for this event. 

Doors open at 4pm
