Encouraging Te Reo Maori through hand-crafted Taonga
Rākau was founded by Tatyana Rountree (Ngāpuhi). Tatyana started her own journey of exploring more of her Māori culture alongside her three children. This began the hunt for resources that combined play and Te Reo and eventually inspired the beginnings of Rākau where interactive resources could encourage the use of Te Reo and Te Ao Māori through play.
Understanding that children learn and develop best when their culture, knowledge and community are affirmed through play, Rākau has created specially hand-crafted taonga that are environmentally friendly, longlasting, wooden toys that can be handed down from generation to generation. Watch here.
