Te reo Måori is beautiful! Matauranga Måori teaches us what the world needs more of, how to value and take care of Te Ao.
Te reo Måori is beautiful! Matauranga Måori teaches us what the world needs more of, how to value and take care of Te Ao. Indigenous culture is renewing itself and showing the world what they have missed. It is a wonderful thing to be proud of who you are and where you come from, but not in a possessive manner but in a truly humble way. At the same time we are willing to throw away the 'humble' and be more assertive in kappa Måori and how tangata whenua want to leave and will leave. The dollar value should not and will not be the highest value. Te Ao is priceless and so are the many creatures we share it with. Te reo is much more then language, it holds the key to teach the world to be better and alter their values that have dominated for so long. The world depends upon it. That how so very imprtsnt this whakaro is!!
