Wānanga - Workshops 

Our workshops, also referred to as wānanga, are founded on Te Reo Māori (Māori language) and tikanga (Māori practices). They are designed to provide a deep understanding of Māori culture and how this knowledge can be used to enrich the workplace, or engage confidently within Te Ao Māori (the Māori world) and Aotearoa, New Zealand.

We provide Workplace Wānanga where we visit your organisation at an agreed upon date and time. All wānanga teachings use traditional Māori learning styles, group activities, storytelling, role play, interactive games, activities and waiata (song) to engage and energise learning.
