'He kākano ahau' Art Print


E kore au e ngaro, he kākano ahau i ruia mai i Rangiātea.

I can never be lost, I am a seed sown in the heavens, born of greatness.

A whakataukī that speaks to the heart of belonging, to remind us that we descend from greatness and that we have a reason for being.


Our prints are printed in Aotearoa on high-quality matte paper. Decorate your whare with hand-lettered inspirational quotes, whakatuakī (Māori proverbs), and karakia (prayers) to encourage the use of te reo Māori in your home.

  • Available in A4

Our prints are packaged in clear sleeves with backing boards and a label that includes the translation on the reverse.
