Kuki Reka Kani are 6 unique cookie cutters, developed and named by Kaumātua as part of a social enterprise called REKA - Rauawaawa Enterprise for Kaumatua Aspirations. Kaumātua can express their heritage, using pūrākau (traditional story telling) to pass on ancient legends to their rangatahi (youth), inspired by the modern Māori patterns carved into the dough within traditional shapes of taonga (treasures.)
