E tuhi, mai i te ao Māori ki te ao whānui
Taking New Zealand literature with a strong Māori voice to the world
In 2000 we establish this charitable trust to delivery programmes that promote and foster Māori literature and its place in the literature of the nation. Guided by our own cultural values, we seek to grow Māori writers’ skills, confidence and opportunity. We encourage Māori writers to stand tall as Māori and to support each other and become a strong force within the literary community of Aotearoa New Zealand.
We have adapted the poutama model as a staircase for identifying, developing and publishing Māori writers.
