What is Ko Maui Hangarau?

Ko Maui Hangarau! is a one-day event featuring some of the best Māori Technologists, Innovators and Entrepreneurs in the world. The day aims to awaken, inspire and ignite our rangatahi (16 – 24 years), and will help connect them with the innovation ingrained in their DNA.

Rangatahi will hear the journey, experience and challenges of some of our most successful Māori innovators. However the overall inspiration for this event can be attributed to one of the greatest innovators of all time:

Maui, the miracle last born son of Taranga, is the most famous of all Polynesian Demigods. Supposedly still-born Maui survived and flourished, and possessed magical powers. Strong in will, creativity, forward-thinking, Maui was a trailblazer whose deeds included superhuman feats. From these grew the legend, and he gained many epithets, one of them being ‘Maui Hangarau’ – Maui the creative one. Today, hangarau is the term we use for new technologies and creative thinking, and we owe this to our wily, cheeky, and clever ancestor – Ko Maui Hangarau!
