Here at South Waikato District Council, we have a internal cultural advisory group named Whiria te Tangata. The group organised activities like morning karakia and waiata this week among other activities and challenges. The activity posted was the kaitahi we held in office where those strong in the reo translated items of food and encouraged staff to use a simple sentence like "He (insert the Māori food name) maku," in order to receive their lunch. It was well received by staff within the office and a brilliant moment to bring staff together over kai but also encourage Te Reo Māori.
