Hiwa-i-te-rangi is the final star that signals Matariki is nearing its end.  *Hiwa means ‘vigorous growth’ and its name is associated with the promise of a prosperous season.  It is to Hiwa that Māori would send their dreams and desires for the year, in the hope that they come true.

Let us support you in making that dream come to fruition, as we build from within and enable our Māori employees to thrive and support their community.
