Exploring Mahi a Atua: a cultural strategy

Mahi a Atua is a powerful approach rooted in traditional wisdom, encouraging learning and instant feedback for real change.

Using Mahi a Atua method

Let’s connect you with your ancestors. We tell Māori stories and share traditional narratives to heal and better understand how our ancestors viewed the world.

Championing indigenous peoples' rights to transform every space we inhabit.

Exploring the philosophy of Mahi a Atua

Māori knowledge is about more than just a set of beliefs. It's about a way of life and understanding the world. We use our stories to learn about who we are, our place in the universe, and how to live in harmony with each other and the environment.

Our Services

We work with organisations who want to adopt Mahi a Atua as their framework. We provide consultation, leadership, wānanga, training and workshops that prioritise:

  1. Affirmation of whakapapa

  2. Changing systems to improve outcomes

  3. The need to understand how institutional racism impacts the inequity for Māori

  4. Exploring concepts inhibiting societal progress; individuality, meritocracy, a-history 

  5. Becoming a Mataora (change agent)

We are guided by three key mātāpono (principles)

Hongihongi te wheiwheiā
Embrace Negative Feedback

Ka mā te ariki ka mā te tauira
