Amplifying voices, honouring authenticity

Making space for indigenous stories, peoples, language and cultures through technology 

Kiwa builds more than apps. We help bridge cultural divides, build understanding, and preserve and amplify indigenous stories, culture and language.

Our history

Founded in 2003 by Rhonda Kite (Te Aupōuri, Ngai Tākoto, Ngāti Kuri), Kiwa was born from an earlier initiative, VoiceQ. This software synchronises text to audio word-by-word, simplifying foreign-language overdubbing for film and TV.

Immersive, engaging learning

Using this proprietary technology, we create multi-sensory experiences to make cultural learning more enjoyable, engaging and effective.
