Te Manu Ao

Te Manu Ao

The Māori Academic Network across Universities in Aotearoa has the acronym Manu Ao. Its name plays on the proverb, Ko te manu kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere, ko te manu kai i te mātauranga, nōna te ao – the bird (manu) that eats the miro berry, has the forest, the bird that eats of knowledge, has the whole world (ao).
