I had a wonderful time sharing memories of New Zealand (indelable, even though they were from my months spent in Christchurch in 1973).
I had a wonderful time sharing memories of New Zealand (indelable, even though they were from my months spent in Christchurch in 1973). I had the great pleasure of working with three wonderful Maori men. They taught me Maori words and we laughed endlessly at my attempts to use their words back at them. Thank you for sending me "100 must-learn Maori words." Some I remember, many I am learning, thanks to your outreach. Language, art and music are such important windows into world cultures. I speak five languages,. Oh how I wish I had studied Maori before visiting your beautiful country all those years ago. My heartfelt congratulations to you for reviving the use and awareness of Maori, the language and the astonishingly rich culture. Thanks for including me in your celebrations, Joe Goodrich.
