Mā Te Reo Wānanga

Wānanga 1

     

Our Mā Te Reo Wananga are funded by Te Taura Whiri i Te reo Māori The Māori Language Commission. Everyone is welcome to come and learn to speak te reo Māori – no charge.

We will have 6 wānanga and they will be on the first Saturday and Sunday every second month (to align with marae trustees meetings). The first wānanga was 5/6 May.
The next wānanga will be 30 June and 1st July 2012.

Tauparapara x3:

Ka tangi te tiitii....(made up own tunes)

We had fun making up tunes to the words of the tauparapara. This helped us remember the words - men to include the tauparapara in their mihi and women to have a waiata tautoko if the tauparapara was used in the mihi.

Putting it all together

- Males had to have:Tauparapara ( optional females)

- All had a mihimihi (that was appropriate for who was in attendance)

- Pepeha

- Ending with no reira tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tena tātou katoa or something
  similar


All attendees needed to stand and say mihimihi and perform a waiata tautoko ( paper assistance with the understanding that they will not be using their paper at next Waananga)

All attendees completed the above outcomes 

Ka  nui te mihi ki to raatou kaha
