He aha a Mātaiao?

He tirotiro ki ngā tohu o te taiao, ōna atua, ōna mātauranga, ka whakaarahia hei akoranga mā te tangata.

Mātainuku, tairangi 

Mātai ki uta, Mātai ki tai

Ngā tohu o te rangi, 

o whenua, o te wai,

Tēnei te tohu ka whakairihia

Tēnei te tohu ka whakataua

Whāia!

He tirotiro ki ngā tohu o te taiao, ōna atua, ōna mātauranga, ka whakaarahia hei akoranga mā te tangata.

"He whakamana anō i te mātauranga Māori, 

kia hoki ai te Māori ki ōna akoranga taiao"

Nā te kaupapa Atua Matua ko Tapuwaekura. Nā Tapuwaekura ko Mātaiao.


Mātaiao emerged from Tapuwaekura, and Tapuwaekura emerged from the Atua Matua health framework.
