We seek to fulfil the hopes of our kuia
expressed in the words of her waiata
E ngā uri whakatupu
Hāpainga ake rā ngā mahi huatau
a ngā tūpuna i waiho ake nei
hei painga mo te iwi o Aotearoa e
O coming generations,
Uplift the arts
left by our ancestors
for the good of the people
na Rangimarie Hetet (1892 - 1995)
Join our whānau in this online community as we celebrate ngā toi Māori, especially the traditional arts of raranga, taaniko, whatu kākahu, tukutuku, whakairo and kowhaiwhai.
You'll find inspiration, conversations, courses and content here like nowhere else - all organised in a way you can easily come back to.
Discover a whole world of beauty and uncover your own creativity
as you share your journey with others just as keen to learn about our ancestral arts via chat, comments and posts - just like social media only 10x better!
You'll love our new home on the web and the way technology is enabling us to support the continuation of our ancient traditions.
Heartfelt thanks to all who support and celebrate ngā mahi o te whare pora me ngā kaiwhakairo. He mihi nui ki a koutou kātoa.
