As a pākehā who came to Aotearoa over 8 years ago I think it's very important to keep the reo of the whenua alive.
As a pākehā who came to Aotearoa over 8 years ago I think it's very important to keep the reo of the whenua alive. Coming from a country who's language was also outlawed by colonists I feel a close connection to Māori and feel the importance of celebrating te reo Māori very strongly. Witnessing racism towards speakers of te reo has also strengthened my resolve to learn more kupu and use them as much as I can.
