Te Māngai Pāho 25th Birthday

Uia mai te pou, ko wai, ko wai
Uia ki a Rangi e tū nei
Uia ki a Papa e takoto nei
Uia mai ki te pou o tōku whare
Honoa ngā pou tūtei kia mauriora ai te reo
Honoa ngā pou whakapuaki kia māhorahora ai te reo
Honoa ngā pou hāpai kia ūkaipo anō ai te reo
Uia mai ko wai te whare?
Ko Te Whare o Te Reo Mauriora
Uia mai mō wai te whare?
Mō tātou katoa!
Ka tau, tau ha e
Haumi e, hui e
Taiki e!

He pōwhiri tēnei na Hon. Nanaia Mahuta, Minita Whakawhanake Māori rāua ko Eruera Prendergast-Tarena, Heamana o Te Māngai Pāho ki a koe, ki te whakanui i ngā tau 25 o te Ao Pāpaoho Māori.

Mobilising Te Reo - Dunedin and Queenstown

Last year we decided to run a handful of free te reo Māori lessons here in our hometown, in Ōtautahi (Christchurh), for anyone who wanted to learn the basics. We were so astounded to get such a positive response that it's prompted us to take our kaupapa (initiative) around Te Waipounamu (the South Island).

We will be bringing our Fush Waka (food truck) so feel free to come down early before the class and have a kai. Make sure you follow us on facebook and instagram to keep up with the latest news.

Your class will be 2 hours and is aimed at absolute beginners. So if you want to dip your toe in the water, learn the basics, nail that tongue twisting Māori place name down the road, or just gain a bit more confidence using everyday words like kia ora then this is for you!

No matter what your language proficiency is, if you want to come down and tautoko (support) we would love to see you.
