Te Waka Rākau


Te Waka Rākau is a registered charitable organisation operating as a not-for-profit social enterprise. It was formed in 2016 to bring wāhine and their whanau together to share their stories through the traditional practice of Rongoā Māori. 


Our mission is to build and preserve the mātauranga of rongoā rākau for the benefit of all people. We believe that there is strength in diversity and recognise that for Te Waka Rākau to be strong we need people from all walks of life to feel a connection with our kaupapa.

If you value the wealth of experience and knowledge that Te Waka Rākau holds and makes available through it’s website, publications and courses then the best way that you can support us is by becoming a member and by encouraging other people to join.

  • Continue to preserve the mātauranga of rongoā rākau
