"From POTENTIAL (Te Kore) comes FORMATION (Te Po), which grew into BEING (Te Ao Marama). From The Red Earth (Te Kurawaka) our seed gestated - emerging and unfurling into the world's dawn light. Listen ... the life force is alive! (Tihei Mauri ora!)."
Maahaki is a balance of natural forces. It is a celebration of collective wisdom that acknowledges everyone's experiences and contributions. By caring about others and encouraging mutual learning and understanding, it empowers our relationships and facilitates connection with our natural environment.
Maahaki - Maori Pride, is knowing who you are - being grounded in that knowledge and moving forward in a state of oneness.
