Rawiri Waititi is our kaikōrero on this hōtaka - joining us by phone to chat about the history, the area and the people of this large East Coast Iwi.
'Tūkapi Puriro' or 'Posessive Pronouns' - tāku, āku, tāu, āu etc - our hosts drill many examples of how ownerhsip structure works in Te Reo Māori.
We're back in Story mode, with this epic tale about Hātūpātū and the Kurangaituku, the Birdwoman.
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.
