NIU - He Tangata Matauhi, Voices of our Ancestors
Welcome to the world of NIU! These oracle cards utilise many of the teachings of classical Tarot and combines them with a Maori cultural framework to create an intuitive ethnic guidance.
The word NIU comes from an ancient Maori ritual which involved casting rakau (sticks) for the purpose of divination. How these rakau fell determined the outcome of a prophecy, forewarning, or spiritual message. He Tangata Matauhi translates as ‘one who foretells the future’, an oracle or divine messenger - a privilege usually bestowed upon a Tohunga Matakite (foreteller of the future).
The NIU Maori Oracle set contains 56 unique Maori influenced cards. A 393 page published guide Ebook accompanies the deck (which is available separately through IBOOKS and AMAZON KINDLE), outlines and describes the meanings behind each card. Like Tarot, their purpose is to trigger and stimulate our intuition so that we may bring self-awareness to the present. In other words, they help to reflect on thoughts and actions in our subconscious and conscious mind.

You’ve really done an incredible job and unlike the 20 or so of different decks I’ve collected over the years these are truely special. I’m looking forward to doing my first reading with them ***
*** Kiaora Bronwyn, I was so blessed to receive the first pack of your cards as a Christmas pressie from my bro-in law. I’m a huge fan of your mahi and when I opened the present I burst into tears of happiness!
