Kōrari Māori Public Health

Kōrari promotes health and wellbeing for all whānau by encouraging positive change, enhancing mana / rangatiratanga and connecting with whānau.

Kōrari is the Nga Kete Matauranga Pounamu Māori Public Health Team. The name “Korari” is the name of the stems of the reeds that a Mokihi is built from. Mokihi being the vessel/waka to transport our people, our kai, and our knowledge. The practicality of this resource is that it is strong, waterproof and transportable, however we can also use the analogy of empowerment and being supportive. As well it represents the building system that looks after your tinana by adding layers of wellbeing to your knowledge kete for whānau to be guided by.

Kōrari Māori Public Health is guided by tīkanga māori values and Te Pae Mahutaonga (a Māori Health Model). The overarching aim is to further strengthen whanau, hapu & Iwi health with the vision that “Māori in Murihiku are well”.
