Free printable download: 'Nāu te rourou' duo prints


Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi.

With your food basket and with my food basket, the people will thrive.

This whakataukī speaks of the importance of collaboration. With everyone’s collective contributions, there will be enough for everyone to prosper.

Enjoy these free printable downloads to display in your whare, workplace, or to gift a loved one. There are two prints included: the te reo Māori version, as well as the English translation. Display them side by side to help with learning the whakataukī, or choose to only display the te reo Māori version.

Sizes included in download (for both Māori and English translation prints):

  • A4
  • 5X7” (13x18cm)
  • 8x10” (20x25cm)


    For best results, print on white card (200gsm or above). Make sure to print at 100% scale. Trim to size (there is a faint border included as a trimming guide), then frame and display.

    Enjoy this free resource! We would love to see where you end up displaying the print! Tag us in your photos on Instagram @maimoa.creative
