About us

Toi Tangata is a Maori agency which develops, delivers, and champions kaupapa Maori based approaches to health, movement, and nutrition.

Toi Tangata specialises in positive health and works hard to create meaningful connections to kaupapa oranga Maori. The kaupapa of oranga Maori is expressed in the whakatauki Tama Tu Tama Ora – Through Physical Well-being We Thrive.

Tama Tu represents all Maori physical elements of our environment; our food and our movements that create oranga for our people. Tama Tu supports the understanding of the concept, ‘through physical wellbeing we thrive’.

Tama Ora is the mana, tapu, and mauri of total oranga and draws on matauranga Maori that enables well-being. It is our understanding of the metaphysical elements that relate directly to the total well-being of an individual and their whanau.
