Maori Matters

Kia ora whānau

This week we have a few pānui: this is for all tauira to get involved.

  1. Each day, Ngāi Tauira will post a kupu o te rā (word of the day) themed around Te Kupu o te Wiki (word of the week). This is to promote Te Wiki o te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week) initiative. If you like us on Facebook ‘Ngāi Tauira-VUWS Māori Students Association’, you will be sure to get our updates on a kupu o te rā.

  2. As of this week, on Tuesday we will be starting a kapa haka / tikanga hour in the NT common room at 5.30 pm (42 Kelburn Parade). We will be learning waiata/moteatea/karakia etc depending on numbers; if there is anything in particular that tauira want to learn, let us know so we can try to organise something. ALL are welcome to come along.

  3. Every Wednesday starting this week, the NT Office and common room will be rumaki reo, nō reira kia kaha ki te hāpai i te kaupapa whānau mā. Also starting next week, there will be kapu tī available in the NT office on Wednesdays as well.
