How You Can Use Manaakitanga

You can use Manaakitanga in your own life and community by helping others in need, welcoming others into your space, including others in your work, sharing with others, and supporting those who need a little extra motivation. It means you must care wholeheartedly for your close ones and be welcoming to more distant ones. Some ways you could do this may be:
  • Greeting house guests instead of cooping yourself up in your room
  • Letting a lonely stranger sit with you at lunch
  • Letting teachers pass you in the school corridors
