Language is a part of us - I feel it lives like we do.Language is a part of us - I feel it lives like we do. I am not Māori but have lived here all my life. I love Aotearoa and language of the land is part of that. I feel ashamed that I can only say "Kia ora" and that I haven't done the Great Walks. I want to experience all that breathes here and language is part of that.
