Online Mâori language products

14 December 2006 - Online Mâori language products

Just in time for Christmas shoppers, a long awaited one stop online shop for quality Mâori language resources and products is being launched today by Haemata Limited.

The Haemata web store has something for everyone, with products and resources for ‘at work’, ‘at play’, ‘at home’ and ‘at school’.

Parents, teachers, family and friends worldwide will be able to buy resources online including talking Mâori language books, jigsaws, games and puzzles, children’s waiata and interactive CDs. The aim is to bring new products to shoppers each month.

The idea started with the design of Haemata’s Piri Pâua baby products range. Piri Pâua products include beautiful Mâori language phrases and rhymes for babies. They make unique gifts for any new baby and are a fantastic way to support parents, whânau and caregivers in speaking Mâori with their children.

Haemata director, Hineihaea Murphy says, ‘When we were establishing an online facility for distributing Piri Pâua products, the concept grew into wanting to provide a whole range of Mâori language products and resources on one easy to access site. There are so many great Mâori language products out there and until now it has been difficult for people to know where to get them. We hope that will change with the web store’.

Go online from 9am today, 15 December 2006 to view and buy the latest products on the Haemata web store. Plus enter the lucky draw to win a pack of Piri Pâua products – six packs to be won throughout December and January.

Parent of two, Holden Hohaia says, ‘At last there is somewhere we can buy a whole range of Mâori language products. The Haemata web store will be a huge help to us in raising our children as Mâori language speakers, not to mention all the neat things that are available for adults as well’.
