Kīngitanga Day 2019 Theme

Kīngitanga Day is an annual event that recognises the unique connection of the University of Waikato with Waikato-Tainui and the Kīngitanga.  A day held by the University for its communities to celebrate and stimulate engagement in a programme that showcases our distinctiveness as an intellectual, cultural and social community. Central activities focus on the relationships with the Kīngitanga and with Māori communities in reflecting the cultural diversity of the University of Waikato and its various expressions of excellence across all areas.

Plan to come along and enjoy a University-wide programme of presentations, panels, workshops, exhibitions, performances and activities.
