MOKO PUNA │ About us
Traditionally Māori would look into PUNA (pool of water) and see the reflection of their MOKO (tattoo), the term MOKOPUNA describes grandchild/ren or descendants. As descendants are a reflection of their ancestors. We have used the play on the word MOKOPUNA separated to reflect ourselves and our business. Traditionally our ancestors would look into these pools to see the stars for guidance and navigation, so MOKO PUNA is about us and it is also about where we want to go to.
