Igniting the voices and experiences of whaiora Māori

Tūmunako is a space to ignite the voices and experiences of whaiora Māori. The programme provides a vehicle for whaiora Māori to share their own personal journey to health and wellbeing through creative expression, culture, and music.   

Tūmunako was developed by Te Kete Pounamu in partnership with Mana o Te Tangata. It started with the formation of an audio collection comprising of karakia, waiata, original songs and spoken word. The collection was launched during 2020 New Zealand Music Month in a special concert to signify the achievement. Following the collection has been made available through a dedicated digital portal and through music sharing application – Spotify.

Te Rau Ora and Te Kete Pounamu have committed to continuing the momentum of Tūmanako by continuing to cultivate the talents for Māori with lived experience.
