Māori aspirations

We work with visionary and innovative Māori organisations to enable Māori aspirations: local, national and global.

Public Sector Innovation

We develop authentic kaupapa Māori frameworks that have universal appeal to facilitate transformative Māori-Crown relationships, capability building, and problem-solving for government agencies.

Private Sector capability building

We help companies and other organisations to achieve greater outcomes for Māori while building their kaupapa Māori capability.

AATEA was established in 2000 as a vehicle to grow kaupapa Māori influence and contribution to shaping Aotearoa New Zealand’s future. Our diverse team is known for being visionary and strategic advisors, researchers, facilitators, and kaupapa Māori design innovators who build authentic and strong relationships from the paepae to the boardroom to The Terrace.

We specialise in these areas: Māori development, te reo Māori education, whānau enterprise, equity outcomes and opportunities, and programme evaluation.

We demystify relationship building and engagement with Māori. We can review your services, recommend strategies to assist your organisation to deliver positive outcomes for Māori and all New Zealanders.

Ko te ara e ū ai tātou ko te tika, te pono, te māramatanga me te aroha, kia tūmāia i te ao, i te pō!
