A korowai is a Māori cloak, it was made in early Māori times and it is normally woven or made from traditional materials like flax or feathers. The Korowai was usually worn by people with prestige or honour, like chiefs.
Today it is still used as a symbol of belonging or unity, and can be worn by anyone. Our Korowai is made from feathers that we all created, so it has a piece of us all inside it. This signifies our belonging to Korimako and shows how all of us together make our hub a strong, encouraging and welcoming learning space.
