We found few resources representing the cultural diversity of our

Polynesian and Māori tamariki in ECE centres and schools which were affordable and of high quality. 

Our experiences as teacher and artist, contributed to the formation of It takes a Village.

Our aim is to support our communities in making their beautiful and vibrant

cultures visible and normalised in everyday life experiences.  

Our ancestors have paved the way for us through village life and it is through our cultural narratives, we remember our histories and now we can pave our own way.
