As a child, I grew up around Te Reo Maori.
As a child, I grew up around Te Reo Maori. I attending a Kohanga, took part in Kapa Haka, was in the bilingual unit, and studied Te Reo Maori. I took part in Nga Manu Korero, and was the kaikorero for powhiri, hui and other functions for my kura. Once I left school, and took on the big wide world, my involvment in Te Ao Maori became less, and there my Reo diminished. I'm taking part in this because I'd like to see our Reo be lifted again, as it did back in the 70s.
