Just a quick note to say that at the end of last year I was honoured to part of a kōrero with others from around Aotearoa, discussing plant-based kai from our perspectives and experiences as Māori. The comments and ideas from others have really inspired me – ngā mihi tino nui ki a Philip for yhisawesome mahi here. Have a read, e hoa mā:
(And remember too, that there are some awesome resources over here if you are keen to learn more about plant-based kai, indigenous veganism(s), etc.)
Kia ora, koutou. Haere mai – welcome to Kaimangatanga.
I created this space as a way to keep a record of and share my favourite plant-based kai recipes. I also want to use this as a platform to explore a kaupapa Māori plant-based lifestyle ethic.
For a long time I felt that my Māoritanga couldn’t sit very well with my leanings towards plant-based kai and ethics. However, the more reo I learn, and the more I learn about Te Ao Māori, I realise that my Māoritanga in fact informs and supports this lifestyle in many ways.
This is a place to discuss some of these ideas, share thoughts, questions, ideas, experiences, suggestions, and of course, recipes. I hope you enjoy it.
