Celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2021

Wednesday September 15 2021

Kia ora Palmy. Te Wiki o te Reo Māori is back, no reira kia kaha te kōrero Māori! Our friends Oho and Āareta are back to teach you about some of the common Māori tikanga or customs you may see at the marae.

These videos have been made following the Ministry of Health guidelines, and physical distancing was adhered to by our team while filming the series. Oho and Āareta are in the same bubble, and we're lucky to have them back this year!

Wero

Ko te kaupapa tuatahi, our first topic, is the Wero or formal challenge.
