We are three sisters Tessa, Adele & Karen. We whakapapa (belong to) the tribes of Ngāti Kahungunu, Tainui, Hauraki, Ngāti Whitikaupeka, Ngāruahine, Ngāti Awa, Rangitāne o Wairau.
We were really lucky to grow up with many happy memories with our whānau, in the beautiful coastal village of Waimārama, Ngāti Kahungunu.
Our Mamaku story started over 10 years ago, when we were asked from our kaumātua (elder) to bring the medicinal effects of the Mamaku into a modern context, as many people cannot go to the forest these days to gather traditional medicines. Thankfully, we feel we have achieved this goal and are now moving forward to share with the many, our Mamaku products.
Our vision and purpose is to share te ao Māori (Māori worldview) with others globally so we can support our Taiao (environment), and encourage the connection to Papatūānuku.
