Te Muka Rau

Te Muka Rau is a small charitable trust funding initiatives that support the vibrancy and recognition of Te Ao Māori, and multiculturalism.

Wellington

Our vision is a socially cohesive Aotearoa New Zealand where: (1) Te Ao Māori is strong and vibrant, (2) The central place of Te Ao Māori in Aotearoa is understood and supported by all, and (3) We all feel confident and respected in our own cultures and heritage

Our trust was set up in 2004 (as Think Tank Charitable Trust) by Kate Frykberg and Dave Moskovitz following the sale of their Internet development company. We are slowly spending down the available funds.

In 2017 we were gifted a new name, Te Muka Rau, meaning “the many strands.” This refers to how the many strands (muka) within flax (harakeke) can be woven together to create new, strong and beautiful possibilities.

The running of the trust is done on a voluntary basis. Trustees do not receive fees, although in recognition of the time involved, trustees have a choice of either receiving a small honorarium to cover the hidden costs of volunteering or the option to allocate one donation of $1,000 per year to a charitable cause of their choosing.

We are committed to working in a way which honours the spirit of partnership enshrined in the Treaty of Waitangi.

We have a bi-cultural board consisting of two Pākehā trustees and two Māori trustees: Kate Frykberg, Seumas Fantham, Pekaira Jude Rei, and Dave Moskovitz.
