Hika Explorer

At Hika, we believe the Māori language is a beautiful, precious treasure for all New Zealanders.

It’s a language to embrace, cherish and pass on to your children and mokopuna (grandchildren). The word ‘hika’ can be used to describe the first flicker of the flame that kindles a fire. The ‘Hika’ experience will enlighten and illuminate your knowledge and understanding of language.

“Learning another language is a journey into the unknown and Hika is like a lamp to light your way and a roadmap to keep you on track”.

The Hika story is just getting started

The Hika technology platform has been designed to support a wide range languages that span the globe. The Hika Lite (English /Māori) and Hika Explorer (English /Māori) are the first of these offerings.

We look forward to expanding our te reo offerings, alongside other languages, for education, government and the public. Hika has also been designed to support the revitalisation of many indigenous languages around the world.

If you would like to know more about what Hika can offer or how you can be involved please get in touch with us today.
