Te Kete Tuatea

Te kete tuatea is one of the three kete (Baskets) of knowledge in Māori tradition. It refers to the experience we have of connections with one another and with the past, knowledge of spiritual realities.

We relate this to our Cultural Kete as this is where learners can connect with their peers, their culture, their past and traditions or learn about new ones.
