Our Story



Kia ora. Ko Mihikore tōku ingoa, he uri ahau nō te riu o Waikato, no Ngāti Korokī-Kahukura, Ngāti Māhanga me Ngāti Raukawa. I am a wahine māori living in Australia and a Māmā to three Australian-born tamariki. Our pakihi (business) Māpihi & Co. established three years ago, after giving birth to our youngest pēpi during the peak of Covid in 2020. The effects of lockdowns and being disconnected from our whānau and home became the driving force and motivation for starting my journey into business.

Our purpose and vision are centered on inspiring and empowering whānau to embrace influences of Te Ao Māori in pēpi’s life. Our pakihi serves as a platform to share taonga māori with our community and an opportunity to educate and raise awareness about our Māori culture and traditions, continuing on the legacy of our tūpuna (ancestors) for the next generation.

When you purchase from Māpihi & Co. you are supporting our little whānau. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
