Series 1 through 3

Ngā Pakiwaitara a Raukawa is a collection of bilingual storybooks and animiations written by iwi members and released across three series.  Our project aims to support the revitilisation of reo Māori and Raukawatanga by providing resources that are meaningful, engaging and easy to access.

Together, the series provides a helpful resource that contains information about our iwi, whakapapa, tūpuna names, historical accounts, and sites of significance through illustrations and easy to follow story lines.

The collection serves to support personal or group learning, with an intended audience from pre-school through to secondary school. Our storybooks and animations are across a number of platforms, making it easy to download, read and watch.
