Ko wai mātou?

IndigiShare exists to revitalise and empower indigenous economies through a platform of partnership.

We are building economic resilience today so that we can pave the way for sustained self-reliance and wellbeing for generations of tomorrow.

Drawing on deep wells of indigenous knowledge, we are shifting power into the hands of our community, reindigenising the way financial capital flows, so it flows in a way that serves all of us better.

From this, we can build a more equitable and more transparent economy that is grounded in community reciprocity.

Empowering indigenous communities

We are creating a movement to empower indigenous economies. We do this through equipping whānau with innovative, secure, and highly-transparent financial products to build economic resilience and reindigenise the flow of capital.

Utilising the
potential and power of reciprocity

IndigiShare is powered by koha, a circular, two-way reciprocity concept that sits at the very core of our purpose. Koha is not just about giving and receiving, but embodies the connections we make and the communities we are building.

Creating intergenerational impact

We are creating long-term intergenerational impact through enabling entrepreneurship within our communities today, to pave the way for self-determination and resilience for generations of tomorrow.
