Our Story

🌿PAST🌿PRESENT🌿FUTURE🌿


We looked to the PAST of our tupuna and their resourcefulness.  Next we looked at the PRESENT day destruction and devastation we are causing Papatūānuku through our consumerist behaviours.  Becoming consciously aware we can create a more sustainable FUTURE.
This kaupapa evolved from a homeschooling project with our daughter Mereana Wairua(8) aka ‘BOSS KŌTIRO’. From this project we developed O TE MOTU CREATIONS LTD.  Through our business our daughter authentically learns her numeracy, literacy, creativity, social skills and most importantly - who she is and how she contributes to society.  Our homeschooling journey is on Insta: Halawaha76

Your Raukura is created with aroha and blessings beside Pukekiwiriki Paa.

FAQ

Are they available in other colours?

No - raukura are created using inner tubing which is black. We do offer bronze tipped in the standard and Huia range.

Can I swim with them on?

Getting your raukura wet is discouraged as it may damage the raukura. Coloured tips will eventually peel if they continuously get wet.

 

Does O TE MOTU offer support to other kaupapa? Ae - there is a number of roopu we support through donations of raukura as well as funding.

Are the hooks stirling silver?

YES they are, any orders as of the 1st of June 2020 are supplied with Sterling Silver earring hooks.

Do you offer gift wrapping and gift cards so it can be sent as a gift?

For an additional $10 we can arrange this.
