Kaupapa Kaimangatanga

He Kōrero

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

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.

Ngā mihi.
