This star signals the beginning of the Māori New Year and appears in June/July. Whilst we may reflect, it is also a time to forge ahead and celebrate new beginnings.
One Foundation philosophy acknowledges past endeavours, but it also welcomes change by applying interesting initiatives and creating new pathways.
For Māori, this star signifies those that are no longer with us. When Matariki rises, Māori call out the names of those who have passed on since the last rising of the star cluster. For One Foundation, this star represents our acknowledgement of the past and the learnings that have happened along the way. It is imperative to acknowledge the history and past trends within the industry to better understand the current climate. In order to plan for the future we must also look to the past.
Kinship acknowledges the importance of sustainable and strong relationships.
