Ā Mātou Kōrero | Our Stories series now available


A collection of stories celebrating the Muslim communities in Aotearoa New Zealand are now available.

Welcome Home, Open day at the Mosque, Ko wai au? – Who am I?, together with the previously launched Aya and the Butterfly, can be downloaded as a PDF or an audiobook for free.

The stories are part of Ā Mātou Kōrero | Our Stories series, which are designed to support understanding of the Kiwi Muslim community. They were developed in partnership with the Islamic Women’s Council of New Zealand (IWCNZ). The idea came about in the wake of the Christchurch attacks in March 2019.

The books cater to children in early learning and Years 1-3, and align with Te Whariki and The New Zealand Curriculum. Early learning services and primary schools will receive print copies of the books. The printed books also include Aya and the Butterfly in Arabic version. The TKI webpage also includes a teaching guide to assist conversations with learners.
