Toi Tangata is a Māori agency which develops, delivers, and champions kaupapa Māori based approaches to health, movement, and nutrition. Combining indigenous knowledge with evidence based approaches, we create Māori derived frameworks to help inform our mahi in the health sector.



Our vision is for our whānau to be healthy, active, and able to achieve their full potential.

Our Mission

Our mission at Toi Tangata is to support whānau and communities to strengthen their capabilities and connectedness with knowledge and skills to  improve well-being.

What We Do

Toi Tangata develops and utilises working methodologies that are mana enhancing and empower whānau to understand, achieve, and excel in their own physical health and wellbeing.  We understand Te Ao Māori, and take a collective ‘whānau centred’ approach to ensure our knowledge and experience as a team will provide an ideal fit.

We aim to represent whanau by informing, educating, and advocating to agencies. We use quality and innovative information and relationships to improve whanau physical health and well-being.
