We're back with some more answers for several new audience questions - new dialects, formal and informal kōrero, taea vs ahei and ngā momo kaupare - all sprinkled with our usual tangents and anecdotes along the way.
With Paraone in Mahuru Māori mode, we have a very knowledgable special Reo speaking guest, Whakarongotai Hohepa, join us to talk about the ever confusing yet vitally important use of 'ā' and ʻō'.
The first of our new kaupapa! We bring you some famous audio excerpts from Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision, and our hosts kōrero about them. Here, we feature some major events in the 1970s - the Te Reo Māori language petition, Dame Awhina Cooper's land march, and the Māori land occupation at Bastion Point.

Our first RRR kōrero covers the functions of negating with "kāore aku", applying possesives like "māu/mōu, nōku/ōku, nāku/āku" etc, along with "a vs ā" and "ā and ō" category differentiations. Along the way we unpack the kupu and give examples of how they can and should be used in Te Reo Māori.
In this episode we have the second instalment of the Tāwhaki story, as told in a conversation between Koro and Moko.
Pakake Winiata calls in to talk with us about his Iwi - the history, the stories, and the people.
