The National Maori Student Nurses Hui 2009 – Hui Tauira o Nga Neehi Maori which was held 21st – 24th May 2009 at Hau Ariki Marae, Martinborough and was hosted by UCOL (Universal College of Learning) Masterton.
Day one started like any other day for most but they may have been unaware that kuratini from across Aotearoa were making there way towards the small settlement of Martinborough for the 2009 National Maori Student Nurses Hui. As the kuratini arrived at Hau Ariki Marae in Martinborough no one could shake the eminent cold snap that had settled over Aotearoa.
