MANATIAKI

ourMission

TIAKI means keeper or guardian and MANA translates as Influence or Power. It means guardianship with a sacred power, to preserve it for future generations. The keeper has the power or ability to keep our culture and heritage alive. MANA TIAKI also refers to our responsibility as guardians of these islands and environment. 

Here is what we do as a business to contribute our part - because every little bit helps!

Little by little a little becomes a lot
