Toi Tangata, the art of human potential.

Toi Tangata is a national Māori agency which specialises in healthy living and healthy learning based on Māori knowledge. 

We draw from mātauranga Māori to inform, advise and empower people who are active in health and related social services.
Operating nationally and locally to encourage healthy and active lifestyles, Toi Tangata works with local and central governments, whānau, hapū, iwi, health professionals, advocates and supporters who are committed to making positive change for the health and wellbeing of our people.

“Over the last five years, I have become more and more time poor, and so my māra has overgrown. Thats why I’ve sort of pushed back and asked how do we create Māori food systems in an urban environment that takes time away from you? In urban spaces we need to think differently about kai. Are we looking at vertical gardens? Are we looking at indoor gardens? Micro gardens? All those different things that can create sustainable food systems for us.”

“Rereata sort of challenged us to think about the Māori economy. Hākari originally was a big ceremony around kai. There’s these big A Frame structures that people would bring and present kai, placing it on different platforms. You could measure how well different marae or different hapū were doing by what they presented. Thats when that whakatauki began to make sense, with kai being an indicator of the economic standing of our people.”
