Ko Ngongotahā te maunga

Nō Rotorua māua
We are sisters Ariana and Maia (aka A:M).
We originally hail from Rotorua but now reside in Tauranga and Ōhope with our whānau/families.
We started A:M as we wanted to see more Māori clothing lines and contribute in this small way to normalising
and promoting Te Reo Māori.
We also wanted our tamariki to not only hear, but see our reo around them, and what better way than on the
kākahu we wear every day!
Te Reo Māori is unique to Aotearoa and we should celebrate it always!
Thank you so much for your tautoko/support - we appreciate you!
He taonga te reo
