Even though I am not Moari I think it is important for all NZer's to know some Te Reo Maori and to gain confidence without fear of embarresment or redicule or being mocked.
Even though I am not Moari I think it is important for all NZer's to know some Te Reo Maori and to gain confidence without fear of embarresment or redicule or being mocked. I work in a school that is mostly Maori and has a number of Maori teachers so being able to speak some Te Reo Maori is a way of showing respect for and recognition of Maori culture. Besides, ka rawe te korero Te Reo Maori, speaking Te Reo Maori is fun.
