Ko Aroha te kaiārahi o tēnei waka. He uri ia o ngā iwi Ngāti Raukawa rāua ko Ngāti Ranginui. Aroha is the creator of Maimoa. She is a graphic designer, hand lettering artist, wife to a passionate Māori teacher, māmā, perfectionist, learner, and advocate for te reo Māori.
Maimoa was birthed out of her desire to fuse two of her passions (typography & te ao Māori) to help normalise te reo Māori in Aotearoa. — Ko Hamuera tō Aroha hoa rangatira, he uri ia o ngā iwi Ngāti Mutunga rāua ko Te Atiawa. Hamuera is Aroha’s husband. He is a te reo Māori teacher, as well as the 'Māori advisor' for Maimoa. — Ko Te Rauriki rāua ko Manahau ngā tamariki. Te Rauriki and Manahau are their adorable kids. They are the main inspiration for prioritising te reo Māori in their whānau. — Thank you for supporting this kaupapa!
