Toi Tangata is an agency that enables whānau physical health and wellbeing. Specialising in positive health, our team works hard to create meaningful connections to Kaupapa Oranga Māori. The Kaupapa of Oranga Māori is expressed in our vision Tama Tū Tama Ora - Through Physical Wellbeing We Thrive.
Tama Tū represents all Māori physical elements of our environment, our food, and our movements that create oranga for our people. Tama Tū 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 mātauranga Māori that enables wellbeing. It is our understanding of the metaphysical elements that relate directly to the total wellbeing of an individual and their whānau.
