The Circle of Courage is a Lakota Sioux model of positive human development that Te Ora Hou has been adapting for communities in Aotearoa.

For more on the circle of courage, see Reclaiming Youth International.

Te Ora Hou are currently using the Maia (an extension of the Circle of Courage) – but after years of outworking in the communities all over New Zealand, Te Ora Hou are finally in the process of developing their own Model of Practice.
