Tēnā koutou katoa,
Te Matahoko online marketplace supports the vision and mission of Māori Women’s Development Inc to encourage the economic development of wāhine and their whānau (family) to ensure that Māori contribute equitably to our cultural, spiritual, economic, social and political achievements.
Māori Women’s Development Inc is a unique and indigenous organisation which supports Māori women in showcasing their businesses to Aotearoa New Zealand, the Asia-Pacific region and other global markets and indigenous economies.
We encourage and support ‘indigenous to indigenous’ engagement, both locally and globally. An area of focus for Māori Women’s Development Inc is to strengthen our wāhine in innovation and digital technologies.
We would like to thank our partners Manatū Wāhine Ministry for Women and Shopify.
Through their relationship with Manatū Wāhine Ministry for Women, Renee Graham of the APEC Policy Partnership on Women and the Economy working group states support for “the ventures of Mana Wahine and sharing success stories with international indigenous communities”.
'Hei Manaaki i Te Mana Wahine'
