Vector – Te Kete Tikanga Māori

Te Kete Tikanga Māori is an educational resource for Vector staff and whānau to learn about Te Ao Māori (the Māori world). It focuses on basic teachings to support their day to day mahi (work).

Interactive features within the app include pronunciation of Māori words, maps with Māori names and iwi groups, values and principles, mihimihi / pepeha (introductions), ngā mihi (greetings), poroporoaki (farewells), whakataukī (proverbs) and waiata (songs).

One of the app’s key features is that it allows staff to input their own personal information to create a customised pepeha.

Vector staff will find this resource particularly helpful when leading, or being part of discussions that involve the Māori community.
