He pakihi whānau, he pakihi Māori a Mana Collective ki roto i Aotearoa. Kei te tipu aku tamariki ki roto i te ao Māori, mai i te kōhanga reo me te kura kaupapa.
He inā rawa mātou ki ngā whakaaro o ngā tamariki, kia poare ai ki ngā reo me ngā tikanga ā-iwi. Ki a rātou kāore he rereke te tipu haere i roto i te ao Māori ki etahi atu tamariki. He mauminamina ana rātou mō te ao Māori me te ao auraki hoki, kua whakamana rātou ki te tipu me te whakawhanaketanga engari kāore he whakawā.
I whakaohooho te awata o ta mātou tamariki mō ta rātou reo me ngā tikanga kia puawai te kaupapa o Mana Collective – He pakihi Māori o te toa tuihono mō ngā kākahu noa mai ngā whakaaro Māori ki te hiki i te reo.
Ko ngā tamariki e whakaarahi ana te hiki o te reo me ōna tikanga, otira uru mai ki ta mātou haerenga kia whakamana tātou ia tātou ki te whakahiapo i te ao Māori orite ki te awata o ta mātou tamariki.
He waka eke noa!
Mana Collective is a small family owned business in New Zealand. Our children are growing up in full immersion pre-school and primary school.
We are amazed by their openness of different languages and cultures. They also don't see growing up in a Māori world being any different to other kids. It's their ease of acceptance for Māori and mainstream environments that's allowed them to grow and develop in different ways without judgement.
Inspired by the passion our children have for their culture and language came Mana Collective - An online clothing store from a small kiwi business normalising Te Reo Māori through casual wear with a Māori twist.
Our children are leading the movement of normalising our language and culture so join our journey and let's see how we can empower each other to embrace te ao Māori with the same passion as our children.
We are in this together!
