Papatuanuku is the Maori name given to Mother Earth. We chose to go with a red, black, and white color palette to symbolize blood, earth, and sky or People, land, and mana. The rauru symbol on her clothes means “Gives birth to life”. It reflects our state of being as humanity, the way we treat ourselves, and how we treat her.
This was my second time collaborating with Titan Ideas. We worked with Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, a sub-tribe of the wider Ngāti Whātua iwi whose ancestral lands are around the Tāmaki isthmus and Auckland. The app is geared toward telling the creation myth of Papatuanuku and Raginui and to give people all over the world the chance to experience Maori cultural stories in a modern way.
