Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Wânanga-o-Raukawa
We are a tikanga Māori place of learning dedicated to contributing to the survival of Māori people through education. In this pursuit of higher education our three iwi (Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Toarangatira) have been joined by many other hapū from aroundAotearoa and Te Waipounamu.
Our main campus is based in Ōtaki, with selected programmes offered at marae based study locations across the motu.
Ōtaki is situated in the Kapiti Coast, home to the Kapiti Island nature and marine reserves and a host of activities ranging from exhilarating outdoor adventures to a superb variety of shopping.
