Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae
Mana is the autonomy, security and self-determination of iwi, hapū and whānau through mahinga kai. Mahinga kai plays a critical role in providing sustenance, strength, cohesiveness and mana to our communities.
It is important that the benefits and success that are derived from mahinga kai are shared with your wider community and local economy, and that equally; the mahinga kai is supported and nurtured by your community and local economy.
Tikanga that strengthens communities and sustainable local Māori economies have not traditionally been focused on profit, or even money, but on relationships of reciprocity.
