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.

In case you missed it!

What if our contemporary successes as Māori could teach us about our connection to tūpuna or Atua? Or if we flip that…
What if our connection to tūpuna or Atua could teach us about our successes as contemporary Māori?

In this hour long Toi Ako Webinar, Deborah Heke shares her insights and whakaaro around Atua Wahine - Mana Wahine. Her research strives to illustrate how attributes of physically active wāhine Māori can represent pathways for connections to Atua.

A former Toi Tangata Growing the Puna intern, Deb is currently studying a Doctor of Philosophy in Māori Health and during this webinar, she touches on key themes that emerged through her kaupapa ‘Atua Wahine – Mana Wahine: Tracing the whakapapa of physical activity among Māori women in contemporary Aotearoa’.

This is a webinar you don't want to miss.
