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.

Vision

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.

Hui ā Tau

An important part of our work is creating a space and place for Māori, whanau, and Māori in the health sector to come together and be able to talk about alternative approaches that are evidenced from a mātauranga Māori base and are complimented by contemporary knowledge and science.

Nutrition is very different, physical activity and fitness is very different when you start from a Māori world view.
There are now so many Māori led events, Māori led services and Māori designed products that shape a new way of thinking about wellbeing.

Our national Hui ā Tau is a place where those initiatives are showcased, supported, and celebrated. It’s a fundamental value for us to continue to support those in the sector, and those who are there to offer the services to the communities, but also to carry us forward so we can continue to have an ongoing impact, we need to look at other innovative services that extend our vision and our mission as well.

Our Hui ā Tau is set to be held in Rotorua from Wednesday 21 February – Friday 23 February at the Apumoana Marae and we look forward to seeing you there. Watch this space for more information.

The Ihumātao based community campaign group, Save Our Unique Landscape campaign - SOUL, is planning to lead a whānau friendly hīkoi along Karangahape Road from Ponsonby Rd to Symonds St on Sunday 10 December.

Ihumātao, Aucklands oldest settlement situated alongside a coastal estuary in Mangere, is the place where the tupuna, Hape, alighted when he arrived in Aotearoa at the end of his voyage from the ancient homeland of Hawaiki. Hape is a central character in many oral histories for the Tāmaki Makaurau region, for example Karangahape Road memorializes his historical call. SOUL plans to perform a celebratory hīkoi on Karangahape Road to connect the two sites and to highlight their conservation kaupapa.

If youre near Tāmaki Makaurau next Sunday, go check it out!
