Kiwa Digital’s work with indigenous groups has been recognised with the announcement it is a finalist in the New Zealand International Business Awards 2016 , in the category Hei kai ke aku ringa for Māori Excellence in Export.
The category recognises that being a Māori business opens doors in the increasingly powerful global indigenous economy. Our clients include the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation of Languages and Haida First Nation, as well as work in Alaska on language projects.
The company differentiates itself as Māori through its vision, approach and the contribution it makes.
“Our vision is to build a global technology business that brings content to life across languages and cultures, respecting the cultural aspirations of the peoples we work with and helping them assert their own ways of understanding the world.“
“This vision has been at the heart of the company since it was established in 2003 to meet the need for quality dubbing of children’s television into te Reo Māori. It is now central to business strategy and a point of differentiation in the international marketplace, whether the company is working with a health board in New Zealand, a dubbing studio in South Africa, a Canadian film company, or a remote Alaskan community.”
