We're combining augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and gaming technologies to encourage and enhance cultural (re)connection with indigenous knowledge and language.


We work with indigenous peoples, communities and businesses to create digital experiences that bring history to life, connect people to culturally significant sites, and preserve indigenous knowledge and stories for future generations. 


ARA is 100% Māori owned digital tech company guided by Te Ao Māori (Māori Worldview) principles. Our mission:

Flood the world with digital platforms built for indigenous cultures. A place where all indigenous cultures can preserve and share their knowledge, educate, and encourage connectedness.

"Journeys of Manu is very distinct as a wayfinding tool as it moves beyond connecting from A to B and creates a real connection to place, through an interactive journey that incorporates movement, culture, environment, technology and fun through a very localised character such as Manu."
