Māori are the indigenous people of Aōtearoa New Zealand. Takatāpui, in modern terminology is a Māori individual that identifies as Queer, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans.

The kaupapa or purpose of the group is primarily for takatapui; building its community, telling its stories and leaving a legacy that will inspire others.

Tiwhanawhana exists for the takatapui community and gives meaning to its kaupapa through different threads: Kapa Haka, Advice, Advocacy, Support of LGBTI Community.

Tiwhanawhana meets regularly on Monday evenings from 6.30pm at the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective, Level 4, 204 Willis St, Wellington.
