“Haumi is a practical tool to further our people’s Te Reo and Tikanga knowledge, and embed our Te Ao strategy in all parts of our work. The app and our internal Te Reo and Tikanga wānanga are just some of the ways Te Pūtea Matua is building cultural inclusivity and understanding.”

Simone Robbers Assistant Governor Governance, Strategy and Corporate Relations, RBNZ

"We've been using our cultural kete app this week to grow our knowledge of tikanga and te reo. There are heaps of great features including how to pronounce words correctly, phrases for emails, greetings, farewells, and a whole lot more! The Haumi app is one of many things we’re doing at RBNZ to bring our Te Ao Māori Strategy to life."

RBNZ – Haumi

Haumi is an educational resource to support our RBNZ people, whānau and friends.

It’ll give our people the confidence and knowledge to bring Te Reo and Tikanga alive at the Bank and in everything we do.

The app includes information on Te Reo Māori (the Māori language), Tikanga (customs), mātāpono me ngā ūaratanga (principles and values), and karakia (prayers/ affirmation).

Interactive features within the app include audio pronunciation of Māori words and phrases, maps with Māori names and iwi groups, a guide to build your own pepeha (introduction), and lyrics and audio of waiata (songs).
