Ake is protected under the provisions of Article 29
of the United Nations draft declaration on the rights
of Indigenous peoples (UNDRIP) which states: 'Indigenous
peoples are entitled to the recognition of the full
ownership, control and protection of their cultural
and intellectual property. It further asserts: 'They
have the right to special measures to control develop
and protect their sciences, technologies and cultural
manifestations, including human and other genetic resources,

and flora, oral traditions, literature, designs and
visual and performing arts'
In the tradition of Toi, this model is
shareable knowledge gifted for the wellbeing of our
world's future children. Please do not withhold it from

on paper for use within a single organisation, in any
single country or location. It can only be reproduced
in full with all pages included, complete with the registration
form and footer copyright statement. No other name,

2. A condition of downloading, accepting a copy from
any source, or using the model is that you register
your email address so we can send the Tipu Ake newsletter
approximately twice per year advising of new developments
and applications. On receipt of the model please immediately
fill in the copy register on page 26, copy the registration
form, fill it in, then post or fax it to us.
3. The Tipu Ake lifecycle was developed by a team of
individual volunteers from many places who contributed
their energy and enthusiasm as koha, without any corporate
sponsorship or government funding.
4. We trust that you too will want to acknowledgement
it with a koha (a gift you can afford based on its value
to you) thanks:
5. The Te Whaiti school achieved a major
transformation in their effectiveness - If you were
to make just a 1% improvement in your (or your organisation's)
performance by using it, what would that be worth to
you over the remainder of your life? As a guide we suggest
you start by considering a koha equal to the value of
one hour of your (or your organisation's) time; if you
don't think it is worth that, then you probably don't
yet understand its potential value to you. This way
unwaged people and volunteers in non-profit organisations
get it at no cost, whilst those earning more and therefore
potentially getting more economic value from it pay
more. From those without money, we value even more your
gift in kind; feedback, thanks and promotion.
6. We ask all commercial, consultant or academic organisations
that regularly make use of the model in their programs
to register and at the end of each year send a koha
(gift in trust based on its commercial value to them).
7. A koha can be made online anytime using using our secure Paypall credit card facility.
All income is used to further promote
Tipu Ake values and support educationalactivities, scholarships
and community development for the wellbeing of our and
