The Autuhi resources provide tauira Māori with a learning experience that is tailor-made for them. Autuhi includes an online platform and multiple print, visual and audio components exclusively in te reo Māori. The website was built with the intention of creating flexible sandpit arena’s for students to practise on depending on their interest in creative writing.

HUIA believes that representation is important and wanted to ensure that tauira could see themselves in these resources. The HUIA team collaborated with illustrators to ensure illustrations were representative of multiple realities for Māori in both urban and rural communities.
The HUIA design team worked closely with digital developers and printers to ensure branding was consistent across all print and digital resources included in the Autuhi suite.
