Vaine Rangatira Awards

17th Oct, 2019

Our mothers, grandfathers, sisters and daughters hold a very special place in our hearts. They have been instrumental in forming the people that we are today, and are constantly the underdogs of society.

Te Maeva Nui o Aotearoa NZ has decided to hold a special event, to award some of those women who have been instrumental in the growth and development of Cook Islanders in New Zealand.

This formal evening will be a platform for the recognition of every day Cook Islands women who have done extraordinary things - not for themselves, but for others around them.

Their selfless deeds have brought about a revolution in Cook Islands culture - from song and dance, to traditional crafts, and then into sports and business.

This is our way of saying thank you!

Tickets will be made available soon. See here for more information.
