Whaowhia te kete mātauranga. Let us “fill the basket of knowledge.” This kete has been prepared as a resource to get you going. It recognises that everyone is at a different place in their Te Ao Māori and Te Reo Māori journey. We encourage you have a look through and use the resources that work best for you and your emergency department (ED).
Please watch this video about how Tāne acquired the basket of knowledge:
