We begin the session with a hongi, everybody greets each other.
It is Te Wiki o te Reo Maori and just another week of Maori for us.
To begin each session we hongi, an exchange of breath and then mihi to each other. Some people are becoming really fluent with theirs. We are also making the mihi into a digital presentation to share at SLCs.
Some of the additional phrases we have been using include:
No hea Koe - Where are you from? Practicing pronouncing Maori place names correctly
He aha tenei? - What is this?
He tino pai to mahi e hoa! - Good job mate!
Let’s make every week of the year Te Wiki o te Reo Maori!
