Kāpuia

Kāpuia means to gather up, or gather together to strengthen. CollaboratioNZ Whangarei is about gathering people, gathering materials, gathering ideas and working together to strengthen the group as much as the individual. Kāpuia comes from the whakatauāki (proverb) by King Tawhiao,

“Kia kōtahi ai te kākaho, ka whawhati. Kia kāpuia, e kore e whati.”

“When reeds stand alone they are vulnerable, but together they are unbreakable.”
