Some say a pepeha is an ancient Global Positioning System(GPS) devised by our ancestors, linking individuals to significant landmarks that in turn connect us to our roots.
A pepeha is a statement of identity, a tribal saying and how Māori introduce themselves on the marae or in
a Māori setting, yet it is also a formula that can be used by non-Maori.
A pepeha recites the whakapapa or genealogy of a person through their ancestral waka (canoe), maunga (mountain), awa (river), iwi (tribe), hapu (sub-tribe), wharenui (meeting house), marae (courtyard), and lastly whānau (family) and ingoa
This pepeha app is designed to help you create your pepeha, recite your pepeha and build your confidence so you can share your own whakapapa to social media.
