Anne - Upper Hutt

My family came to New Zealand from Scotland in the early 1800's before the Treaty of Waitangi, so we have been here a long time and yet, except for my primary school days in the 1970's, my Maori language education has been severely lacking.

Since visiting Hawaii and hearing how their language almost died out, I have been keen to learn Te Reo and to learn more about Maori culture.
