Our Kaupapa

Kia Māia Bicultural Communications was established in Wellington in 1999 as a specialist consultancy. The overriding aim of our business is to contribute to improved communication and connection between the varied communities and cultures that make up Aotearoa / New Zealand.

We are especially committed to a greater understanding of the partnership between Māori and non-Māori, recognising and celebrating our differences as well as the things that bind us together in our common experience.

The vision we work towards each day is of a New Zealand where biculturalism is natural – simply part of the normal fabric of our lives – and where everyone is able to contribute fully to our nation.

Aotearoa / New Zealand is the only place in the world where our unique indigenous culture and language exist. Our passion is celebrating this fact, and providing high quality information and tools that help others celebrate it too.
