Koru Art

Filed in About Koru Ceremony — January 8, 2022


I am always attracted to anything to do with the koru symbol.

The artwork of Raweyn Harris was used to teach first through fifth-grade students to create koru designs using oil pastels. In the lesson plan, their definition of a koru is:

“The koru is the Maori name for an unfurling fern frond known as the ponga plant that grows in New Zealand. It symbolizes new life, growth, strength, and peace and is an integral symbol in Maori art and tattoos.”

What does Koru mean?

KORU (kor-roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” For the indigenous people of New Zealand, the koru spiral represents a fern frond beginning to unfurl. The koru symbol embodies new beginnings, a new phase of life, renewal, hope for the future, positive change, personal growth, working in harmony, bringing people together, and being mindful of the good things in life.

At Koru Ceremony, we strive to personify these ideals and celebrate a new beginning through ceremony and ritual.
