Visit Ngā Motu (The Islands) and learn about the indigenous language, culture and people of Aotearoa (New Zealand).
New Zealand game designer and founder of Piki Studios, Whetu Paitai, created a special Minecraft world called Ngā Motu to immerse young people in Māori culture. The project shows how the immersive and interdisciplinary world of Minecraft can bring to life indigenous culture and build social-emotional skills, as students work together to explore their country’s national language and history.
