He kamupene Maori e whai ana kia whakatairanga i te ahurea Māori ki te ao!

Arataua is a media and communications company established by Rotorua based couple Chey and Kahurangi Milne.

Chey (Ngapuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngai Tahu)
Television presenter, producer, director, wannabe golf aficionado and te reo Māori dude has worked in the media industry for over ten years.                      

Kahurangi (Ngati Whakaue, Ngati Rangiwewehi)
Television presenter, marketer, researcher and kapa haka girl has also worked in the media, marketing/communications, tertiary and performing arts industries. 

Arataua comes from the name of a Street in Ohinemutu, Rotorua where Kahurangi was born and raised and where her papakainga (homestead) still remains.                                                                          

When we became young parents we moved out of the Auckland rat race to Ohinemutu and it's where our vision of running our own company was born.

Our unique-ness (for lack of a better word) is grounded in our passion for te reo Māori (Māori language) and culture. As a whānau it's what we love and what we do.

Together we created Arataua and Aotearoa Creative to feed our passions. As such we pretty much have our hand in a number of pies:

  • Television
  • Media
  • Marketing and communications (strategy, rebranding and implementation)
  • Māori language activities

From concept, to creation to distribnution it’s all good!

Creativity is our buzz and we are keen to work with others to create magic, whether that’s right at the very start in the idea-nation space or bringing those ideas to life through different platforms these being video, still, audio, visual, print or social.

Ko te pae tawhiti whaia kia tata, ko te pae tata whakamaua kia tina!
