Rākau was started by a way of connection. I am a Māori/Russian and a mother of 3. Over the past few years I have quietly been on a mission to embrace more of my Māori culture, learn te reo and encourage my tamariki to explore and connect with their heritage and identity as Māori. This is what inspired me to create interactive resources to help encourage the use of te reo and te ao maori, whether it be within our homes or in our schools and early childhood centres.
Everything I create is universal so this can be adapted to whoever you are, wherever you are from in the hopes that each and every one of you can add your own korero to these products.
