Te Ohonga Enterprises Limited embraces the timeless knowledge and wisdom of the Elders who guide, guard and protect the Taonga (treasures) of all things sacred and precious.

By adhering to this ancient philosophy we remain connected and advised by those prestigious and learned ones who transcend  the world of business, and ensure we maintain Mana in all things. Tikanga Māori is esoteric in nature and only after many years of living experience within the world of business, family and service can the depths of this timeless knowledge be understood and shared.

By planting the roots of our philosophy deeply within Mother Earth – Papatuanuku we  secure our stability below as the world above in the heavens Ranginui continues to feed and nourish our soul.

Our recognition of the knowledge, understanding and execution pertaining to all matters in Tikanga Māori  transcends the physical dimension of life and merges into a multidimensional existence.
