He aha te mahi tātou | What we do

Our primary objective is to provide services, information, tools and opportunities for our people to connect and engage. Our interconnected structure facilitates maintaining relationships while preserving privacy and data according to the unique needs of Māori organisations and tangata whenua.

Whakapapa represents not only our genealogy but also creates a foundation to the many layers that connect us to the world. Just like a mauri stone imbued with a life force for protection, whakapapa is the silent and invisible mauri buried beneath the centre of our 3 Pou anchoring the energy of our business .

Our 3 x Pou

Our Pou shape our efforts and defines where our energy is placed as a company. Mana is inherited at birth and the actions of every individual can either enhance or diminish that mana thorough the eyes of others.
We build trust through listening and understanding with an open mind and respect while promoting autonomy to enhance the mana of our clients and members.

Mana Whenua

Customary and ancestral obligations over our land, lakes, rivers and seas requires us in our role as kaitiaki to protect and nurture our environment which will in turn protect and nurture us.

Mana Atua

Mātauranga Māori, self-expression, creativity, connection and engagement supports the development of our personal physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being.
